Dion Lardner lloui iceault, bon viveur, 
one of the most brilliant conversational- 
ists of his time, with sparkling Irish eyes 
and well chosen words which rushed out 
like a torrent, was a remarkable man who 
was more or less of a mystery to his con 

temporaries. How, with little or no edu- 
cation, this Irish actor knew what he did 
could not be explained even by his friends. 

According to biographical records, 
Bouckeauh (pronounced bf si-co) was 
born at Dublin in 1839 of a French 
refugee and an Irish mother. He has 
been called the Shakes|>eare of his day 
for nobody knows where Shakes|>eare 
obtained the education which is apparent 
in his plays and the same question is un- 
answered in the cast of the Irish author 
who spike French as fluently as English 
and whose Latin quotations were as pat 
as his Irish wit . 

At the age o! sixteen, he astonished the 
world with one of the most brilliant 
comedies in any language, London -\ssur-

the shortest invisible notice. In an extra- 
ordinary prelate to his play, Bouciieault 
tells of the exceeding kindness of the 
theatre management to an unknown play- 
wright and gives most of the credit foi 
the play's success to "the mass of talent 
congregated in this piece" who made the 
author's characters more real than he had 

created them.

house List 
a poem I 

During a heated discussion at the 
Sig Kp meeting last Monday, Lou 
Bush got up and made a motion that 
the fraternity hold its rushing ban- 
quet at the Amherst Laundry. 

In ,i recently publbhed veJumn, Prof e aa or Walter Pitkin defend* the tberia 

that "Life begins a1 forty." By this statement he means to say that the deep life, 
lite inner life of the spirit ami understandinn, the immortal life begins when men 
re u h the age of forty. We do not desire to enter into any controversy with Profe aaor 
Pitkin nor have we the time to refute his arguments, but we do believe that life 
begins' for the freshman, that life begirt* when a man or a woman enters college. By 
this statement we mean that life the a. live management of oneself in the world of 
en and affairs, in the world of the mind anil of knowledge, and in the world of the 
spirit and wisdom, that this kind of life begin* when the individual has reached 
the ,-irc to eater college. 

Life begina for the freshman because for the first time during his existence he 
may actually direct his own destiny in the world of men and affairs. The Ugh school 
or preparatory school graduate is allowed to guide himself and other men and women 
through the intricacies of human relationships. For the first time he has an oppor- 
tunitv to realize the importance of living, of choosing hi* own companions; he is 
brought in contact with other men greater and lesser than he is; he begins the crea- 
tion of hi* character and personality. Because, at last, he is freed from the complete 
dominance oi his family, the Individ**! who has reached the age of the average 
freshman begin* his life. 

Into the complicated world of affairs, the freshman enters. Social and at hlet it- 
affairs, extra-curricular and curricular affairs demand his attention and for the first 
time he is free to reject or accept them. He has the opportunity to direct hi* destiny 
through the multifarious happenings of the life that for him is beginning. He can 
make the world of action* ami doings over CO— pl i ca t ed for himself and for others 
and thus lose hi* bearing*, his mind, his soul, and his individuality, or else he can 
make his life aimplc and clear, he can travel directly to his goal and give to the world 
a part of himself that is far from negligible. Because he has the opportunity to do 
these thing* for the first time, his life begins. 

The freshman is realeased, unhindered and unhampered, in the world of the 
mind and knowledge. Now he sees clearly the greatness and the smallness of his 
intellect, now he receive* a view of the v.tst ..(cumulation of knowledge. As he begins 
his collegiate education, he has control of his mind and he should know its limita- 
tions. He can train it to think logically, to see through the motives desires and false 
thinking of other men, to penetrate the world and see beyond it At the same time 
he can allow hi* mind to gather moss, to wander from idle (beam to idle dream, to 
become standardized by contact with men and women who long ago lost the dis- 
tinction* of their individuality. In the field of knowledge he can become !o*t amidst 
the maze* of facts and details, of theories and hypotheses, he can drift through COOTSC* 
accumulating irrevalent and insignificant material. Yet he can plan his excursions 
into the field of knowledge, he can determine his route and becau*e he can do these 
things for the first time, the life of the freshman is beginning. 

Entering college, the freshman receives, as he has never received before, inti- 
mations of things greater than he, and he comes in contact at last with the world of 
the spirit and wisdom. He b ec om e * conscious of the larger life, of "bcyond-man," 
and of greater force*. Now he has an opportunity to develop within, to see with 
intuition the of life, its intangible treasures, its pathos, it* beauty, and it* 
power. He enter* into a greater understanding. Now he meets a woman the like of 
which he ha* never seen before, wisdom. Again we say, that because tin- tre*hman 
Bees these great and to him new t hings, lor the first lime his life begins. 

We repeat, life begins for the individual who has reached the age of the average 
freshman because for the first time, that individual has an opportunity to actively 
manage himself in the world of men and affair*, in the world of the mind and knowledge 
and in the world of the spirit and wisdom. 


Because of ma** education in our college* and our universities, the pro fess or* and 
instructors of mo*t of our institution-, and perhaps even of our own school, doubt 
the learning ability of the average student. The professor assume* that hi* Student 

desires only a very superficial knowledge of the subject, and if he desire* a deeper 
understanding of the course is incapable of it. Consequently the instructor* and the 
professors bring themselves down to the level of the sub-average student in their 

treatment of the course, in their use ot language and illustration-, and in their atti- 
tude toward the subject itself. In other word*, the professor* Offer BJ0 incentive or 
inspiration to the Student because they are not in their lecture* above the intellectual 
level of the -indent. Only in remaining on a level above that of the average Student 
in their treatment ot t he cour*c, employing a language which requires a certain degree 
of attention and labor from the student IK order that he may understand it, and in 
taking an attitude toward the subject and toy» 4 .rd the *tudent which recognize* him 
a* capable and willing to learn the course thoroughly can teaching and lecturing be 
effet live. 


Who was the sophomore girl who 
showed a group of freshmen where to ring 
the bell after the frosh rope pull victory? 

How so many freshmen girls manage to 
look pretty in that aw i'ulK -colored hat? 

Overheard in the Memorial building: 
iley, frosh! Don't spit on the floor!" 
Frosh: "Whassamatter, fbjor leak?" 

Prof: "Boys, are you passing notes 
back there?" 

Rear of room: "These are not notes 
they're dollar bills. We're shooting 

Prof: "Oh, pardon me!" 

Woman, generally speaking, is gen- 
erally speaking. 

Typical conversation among a fro*h lx>\ 
and a frosh girl sitting out a dance at the 
reception last week: 

Girl: "Did you go to the circus this 

?t » 

Boy: "No." 

Girl: "What's your favorite kind of ice 

Boy: "Vanilla." 

Girl: "How do you spell cat?" 

Boy: "C-A-T."

professor of English at West Virginia 
University. This was followed by his 
appointment to the Massachusetts State 
College faculty in 191 ti as assistant pro- 
lessor of English, but he served for a year 
as headmaster of Dean Academy before 
beginning his long term here. He became 
a full profe*sor in P.tlS, head of the de- 
partment of language* and literature in 
1926, and for three years he was acting 
dean of the College. 

He spenl some time before becoming a 
teacher as a professional actor in the 
association with Edwin Booth, Otis 
Skinner, and other great actors. His in- 
terest in drama continued until his death. 

As a teacher of English, he probably 
came in contact with more students than 
any other professor. This was due in 
part to the course in English literature 
that was developed and formed by him. 
As a mark of student esteem, the 19.50 
Index was dedicated to him. At the time 
of his death he was working on biogra- 
phies of Lord Byron and Dion Uouci- 

Professor Prince's Address 

The eulogy delivered by his associate, 
Professor Walter E. Prince, at the open- 
ing Assembly of the College, foUowa: 


Mr. Chairman, President baker, Mem- 
bers of the Patterson Family, Members 
of the Fatuity, Student* of the Ma**a- 
chusettS State College, and All ( iood 
Friends of the College: 

la that noble elegy, The Admiais, 

written in memory of the tlead Keats, 

the poet Shelley sings: 

"Life, like a dome of many-coloured glass. 
Stains the white radiance of Eternity, 
Until Death tramples it to fragments. . ." 

For most of us, it is only in stub shatter- 
ing moment* that we giirapse at all the 
mystery of existence, a glimpse, too, so 

Meeting, so evanescent that with its 
passing we are but the more sorely 
puzzled and can only murmur: 

"We are such stuff 
As dreams are made on, and our little life 
Is rounded with a sleep.'' 

Shakespeare The Tempest, Act IV 

Now, we are confronting such a mo- 
ment. A little less than a month and a 
half ago we were all stunned by the 
pawing of Charles Henry Patterson, our 
colleague, our leader, our friend. But a 
few weeks ago and he was with us -able, 
prudent, genial, human; now we can 
only bring "frail tokens of love, and pay 
this inadequate tribute " (Vergil, Book 
VI). Thai afternoon it is my purpose 
merely to try to put into words as truly 
as I can a few of the things which 1 fee 
very deeply and very sincerely about my 
friend and your friend. 

No one who ever knew Charles Patter- 
son at all could help l>eing impressed 
with his immense love for literature, 
especially for our own English literature 
in which he was such a master. It was 
this great love and respect for the noble 
heritage of so many centuries of spiritual 
and literary fruitage in our English race 
that led him to expect and demand noth- 
ing less than the l>est from every student, 
as so many of you can attest. The pa- 
tience and the skill which he brought to 
bear in conducting and building up to its 
present state of abounding excellence the 
sophomore survey course in English 
literature the largest and one of the most 
important fundamental courses given in 
our curriculum— will ever be a monu- 
ment to his scholarship, his teaching skill, 
his fine absorption in those humane 
qualities that distinguish the field of 
letters and a noble criterion in teaching 
which hi* successor will find it difficult,

Led by Captain Dave Caird for the 
second year, the Massachusetts State 
| wirsity cross-country team has excellent 
chances of going through the entire 1089 
ieaaoa undefeated. Last fall, the Maroon 
ind White harriers, coached by L. L. 
Derby, won four of the five varsity meets. 

The nucleus of this fall's team will be 
milt around Captain Caird, a senior and 
Bob Murray and Stephat, both juniors. 
M array was the outstanding cross-country 
miner in Western Massachusetts last fall 
ii,l won every dual meet he entered, four 
it all. In the last meet with North- 
vestern, Murray was not able to repre- 
, nt the Maroon and White and the 
), ibymen were defeated for the only lo** 
,1 the 19:52 season. Murray, a small, 
ugged junior, is the holder of the course 
ecord for the State course, leading the 
jck to the taiMj in State's victory ov.-r 
Vmherst last year in the excellent time 
,i 21m. '.»s. The varsity course at Massa- 
husetts State is four miles long while the course is two and seven-tenths 
miles in length. 

Stephat is a newcomer to the Maroon White harriers who is expected to 

,lay an important part in the meets this 
(ill. He was not able to run for the 

arsity last year because of the transfer 
rule but during an interclass meet he 
captured the mile in the good time of 
4 nt. 39*. 

Red Crawford and Dave Crosby were 
the two letteniTm lost by graduation but 
during the last week Coach Derby an- 
nounced that Si Little, a letterman, and 
Hill (.illete, a promising junior, would be 
absent for the 19113 season. Little was 
itricken with appendicitis last week, 
while Gillette did not return to school. 
Carl Dunker, a sophomore who placed 
third in the freshman race at the New 
England Intercollegiates in Boston last 
all, is an excellent prospect. Other can- 
didates are Allen and Jordan, both 
uniors, and Proctor and Bishop ol the 
193d class. 

Coach Derby is hopeful for a victory 
vir Tufts in the opening meet but says 
that the success of the 19.33 team will 
lepend on the ability of the sophomores 
place among the first five. Coach 
Derby is confident that Murray, Caird 
Hd Stephat will be able to finish among 
1st leaders in the various meets this fall. 


Facing the hardest schedule in the 

history of the varsity soccer team, the 

Briggamen are gradually rounding into 

shape for the opening game with Wor- 
cester Tech on October 7th. I.a*t year 
the varsity hooters lost but one game, 
tied one and won four, while the 19.31 
aggregation wa* undefeated ill six game-. 

Over forty candidate* reported to 

Coach Larry Mriggs for the opening fall 

practice with ten letterraen to form the 

nucleus for the 1033 team. Captain Bob 
Taft was the only forward of last year* 
successful team lost by graduation while 
Pruyne at halfback and fiodson at full- 
back are the regular* nii**ing from tin- 

Captain Roy Cowing, a stonewall of 
defense OB la*t (all'* team, will lead the 
Maroon and White booters. The for- 
ward line will con*i*t of Bill Ko/lowski, 
Jimmy Mackiininie. Bob Jackson, Ru*- 
Taft and Harry Bernstein, all letierinen 
and members of the 1934 cla*s. Ed 
Talbot, Jim Blackburn and Eliot Lands- 
man, lettermen, will probably take over 
the halfback Iterths while Captain Cowing 
will again lie at fullback. Howard Debbie, 
a junior and substitute to Houran last 
year, will play regular goalie. 

The schedule this year is very difficult 
but Coach Briggs predicts that the team 
will win more than half the games. Brigga 
states that Amherst, Dartmouth and 
Wesleyan are the teams most likely to 
defeat the Maroon and White booters. 

The schedule: 
Oct. 7 Worcester Tech 

14 Trinity 

28 Tufts at Medford 
Nov. 2 Amherst at Hitchcock Field 
4 Dartmouth at Hanover 

10 Conn. State at Storrs 

18 Wesleyan at Middletown

backfield man. Didn't your father go to 
this university?"

Displaying an overwhelming amount 
of man-power and enthusiasm, the class 
of 1037, under the leadership of Chick 

Cutler and bob Bieber, got oil to a Hying 

start by decisively defeating theclaa* of 

1936 in the annual rope pull at the 

College Pond last Saturday, The contest 

wa* scheduled to last for ted minutes but 
the superiority of the freshmen was so 
great that every one of the sophomores 
had lo*t a grip on the roi>e after eight 
minute* had elapsed. Last year the t la*. 

of 1036 defeated the i lass of 1038 but 

weie not ahle to gain complete possession 
of the ro|K'. 

The remarkable leal tire of the event 

wa* the splendid class spirit displayed by 
the frosh, over 100 men reporting for the 
1037 team. However, a* the class of I9."{i; 

Wa* not able to assemble the required 
sixty men, the 1037 team was cut down 
tO approximate size of the sophomore 
team. At the Stall ol the pull 4li sopho 
more* held the rope on the western side 
of the pond while fifty-two freshmen 

manned the h>|h- on the eastern side. 

The heaviest man on the l'.».'{7 team 
WSJ 210 pound* with the lightest man 
over ISO while the sophomore weights 

ranged from 170 pound* to l-. r » pounds. 

Despite the great weight advantage held 

by the t la** of I9:»7, the so phon iores pi< 
sented stiff op po si tion during the first 

five minutes but gradually the frosh 
draggetl the rope at to** the pond anil at 
eight minutes had assumed complete 
pnsaeaaaoa of the rope, an emblem of a 
complete, well-deserved victory. 

Two days before the rope pull, on 
Thursday night, the SfttUSl rally was 
held on South College field. The occasion 
was co l ored by ■ great bos usr e and the 
music of seven enthused meml>ers of the 
College. The rally was presided over by 
Freddy Clark, president of Adelphia ami 
the keynote of the occasion was on em- 
phasis in extra-curricular activities as a 
secondary part of college life. Profeaaor 
Rand ami Head Coach Taube were the 
principal speakers while many outstand- 
ing campus l e a d er * made pleas for I he 
siip|x>rt of the teams and a parti, ipal ion

Because the game scheduled with 
Cooper Union for this Saturdaj was 
cancelled, Coach Mel Taube will have 

one extra week in which to prepare for 

the Bowdoin game. In 1031, Ma**achu- 

setts Stale defeated Cooper Union 60-0 
in the opening game while la*t year Lou 
Bush ■cored five touchdown* to lead the 
Maroon and White eleven in a duplicate 
50-0 victor) ovea the New Yorkers. The 
Cooper Union game has always given 
Coach Taube an opportunity to test his 
aquad before the first important contest 

with Bowdoin but this tall the Massa- 
chusetts Slate \aisiis will face the strong 
Maine team untested. Last year Bowdoin 

sprung an upset in collegiale football 

rank* b\ defeating the Taubemen 20 o. ll Taube will piobabh deVOtC t lie 

next two weeks to asveral lengthy scrim- 
mage* in order to have the Maroon and 
White squad in excellent condition for 
the Bowdoin game. I...*i \e..i ii.e Mas- 
sachusetts State varsity enjoyed a highly 

successful BSaaon, winning seven games 
and losing two, swamping Aiuhei.*t in 
the objective game, lil-0. Lou Bush, 
captain of this year's eleven, was the 
leading scoicr of lout ball iu the nation 
last fall ami will undoubtedly play an 

important part in State'* victories this 

year, (oath Tauhc lost four men by 

graduation, Captain Leary at tenter, 
Shelf at halfback, Cumming* at tackle 

and Hit kford at guard. 

In Smith and Mountain, Ixith *eniois 
and veterans of two year's experience, 
Coat b Taube will have no worry about 
the end potation*. Ryan, a senior, and

the duties of guard will be handled by

is to find a pivot man to sun seed Leary at

a merry battle for the starting position.

ation for and love of the great Romantic 

poeti Leats and Byron, Rossetti and 
Hut truly his greatest love, as you 

know, was found in the drama, in every 

period o! which he was equally at home, 
from the tropes and interludes, miracle 

plays and moralities of the Middle Ages, 
down through the drama of Shakespeare 
and the great Klizahethans, through the 
heroic plays so called of Drydcn, through 
the scintillating comedies of the Restora- 
tion masters of wit and irony, down to the 
art of the late Dion Mouciceault whom he 
believed to he greatly underrated when 
not actually neglected by the present age 
and of whose life and work Professor 
Patterson has left what is douhtless the 
most comprehensive and thoroughgoing 
study that has yet heen made. I trust, 
Mr. President, if no other arrangement 
proves feasible, that somehow Massachu- 
setts State College may find a way to 
make possible the publication of this 
critical biography of Dion Mouciceault as 
a memorial to its author who has done 
so much for the cause of drama in our 
college and in our community and some 
of whose earlier years were spent on the

Edwin Booth, Margaret Mather, and 
Otis Skinner. For me some of the happiest 
recollections of my friend will be found 
always in the fact that I was privileged 
to be a member of the cast he last directed; 
that I was also favored, as were some of 
you, in seeing him in his final and only

in the summer at the Court Square 
Theatre in Springfield, shared together 
the pleasure of witnessing what proved 
to be for him the last p r of es sio nal pro- 
duction he was destined to see. 

Mm do not, my friends, conclude that 
all this fervent interest in and preoccu- 
pation with the emotions as the basis of 
great art ever led Charles Patterson to 
neglect or to underestimate reason as the 
rule of life. To such a comprehension of 
the role of reason in life may be attributed 
his ready understanding and mastery of 
the great thinkers of the Age of Reason — 
the eighteenth century -of Swift, Shaftes- 
bury, Mandeville, Johnson, Hume, Gtb- 
bon, Burke, and Paine. There never has 
been, there is not now, nor is there ever 
likely to be on this faculty a more fear- 
less, a more valiant, a more forthright 
exemplar of reason as the law of life than 
Charles Henry Patterson. For cults and 
the "cultish," for the esoteric, for the 
dark, for whatever savored of mystifica- 
tion or hocus-pocus, he was ever on guard 
and strove mightily to imbue his students 
likewise with a similar attitude of caution. 
As the Reverend Henry Ives in his 
funeral address so admirably brought out, 
our friend trusted reason implicitly as the 
law of life and never doubted that she 
would be justified of her children. 

It is, however, as a friend that those of 
us who knew him best love to think of 
him. Never shall I forget the fine con- 
sideration with which he stood by me in 
my time of trial less than two years ago,

nor shall I fail to remember with what a 
solemn satisfaction I now recall our fre- 
quent conversations carried on in his 
Bower garden, in which he so much de- 
lighted, this very June before he left for 
that Maine vacation from which he was 
not to return. His sterling sincerity, his 
genial humor, his consideration of others, 
his ability to sense and to understand 
their case as different from his own, his 
Scrupulous fairness, his sportsmanship, 
his good fellowship -and what a good 
fellow he was! these, all these qualities, 
and many more endear him forever to 
every one of us. With what poignancy 
they bring to us by their very absence 
now the whole problem of human exist- 
ence and the meaning of the great transi- 
tion that every life, no matter how rich 
in joy and love, must sooner or later 
make. One moment we behold it fertile 
in experience, replete with meaning, great 
with the promise of much more still to be 
achieved; the next -silence and "the 
dreamless dust." Man's life, indeed, falls 
between two eternities; in verity, it is 
like unto that parable which the Venerable 
Bede more than ten centuries ago told of 
the sparrow driven in at one door of the 
great hall from the wild storm without 
and presently departing at another into 
the dark and wintry night from which it 
had emerged. 

What more fitting word, then, in con- 
clusion can I utter than that spoken by 
the great humanist and interpreter of life, 
S h a kesp eare, whom our friend so well 
understood and so truly loved? Doubt- 
less you all remember in the tragedy, 
Hamtet, how dear Hamlet was to Horatio;

Dormitory and Library on Lists 
Awaiting Approval by N. R. A. 
Authorities As Part of Public 
Works Program 

Massachusetts State College's hopes of 
a new library and a new men's dormitory 
to take care of increased student enroll- 
ment received sudden imeptus last week 
in the signing of the third list of public- 
works projects by Coventor Ely. This 
list which was submitted to the Governor 
by the state emergency public works 
commission as part of the N.R.A. pro- 
gram, now goes to Washington to await 
final approval by the Federal authorities. 

Estimated to cost $200,000, the pro- 
posed new library is a two story, U- 
haped, brick building with basement, 
having a capacity of 140,000 volumes and 
designed to accommodate a minimum of 
350 readers. Several sites are under con- 
sideration for this new building, but as 
yet no definite decision as to its location 
has been arrived at. A feature of the 
building, aside from ample space for stall 
workers, business offices and stack room, 
is the two story periodical and general 
reading room, with study room in the 
Upper part. On the first lloor will also Ik- 
individual Study and reading desks in the 
rear of the stacks, and on the second 
Moor, a faculty and graduate student 
reading room, space for exhibitions, 
study tables aitd space for memorabilia. 

Kmulating early Georgian-Colonial ar- 
chitecture in keeping with the climate 
and locality, the proposed new men's 
dormitory is designed to accommodate 
150 students. It will be a four story

Four College Daily 
Will Be Published 

The Intercollegiate Daily News, a pub- 
lication coveting events and opinion on 
the four campuses in the valley, Amherst, 
Smith, Mount Holyoke, and Massachu- 
setts State will make its first appearance 
on Monday, October 9. The editorial 
board is composed of two graduates of 
Smith College, and one graduate of 
Mount Holyoke. 

It is hoped that the paper will appeal 
to all the students on the separate cam- 
puses inasmuch as there has always been 
mutual interest shown, either competitive 
or CO-operative, among the valley college*. 

This idea of aa intercollegiate news- 
paper has long been debated and was 
once even tentatively planned. But be- 
cause si. many students wished to use the 
paper as a medium of expressing private 
opinions freely ami of "grinding personal 
axes." the idea had to be dropped.

Approximately hoc vear ago, the Hoard of Trustees announced the election of 
Dr. Hugh Potter baker to the Presidency of the M assachu se tt s State College, Four 
months later, on February l, Dr. Baker commenced his administration. During the 
interval from February to October, President Maker has done certain things and 
attempted others, he has realised certain ideals and tried to make other ideals mani- 
fest. On the eve «»i his inauguration it is fitting thai are should review his accom- 
plishments and m tO understand the things he has attempted to do. We shall not 

judge the result! nor the values of his administrative measures nor eetimate the 
progress he has made low. ud the realisation of his ideals. 

In his relations with the various student organisations, President Baker has 
followed a policy of non-int e r fe re n ce. He has not meddled with the affairs of students 
and student groups. On the contrary, be has made them less dependent of faculty 

Supervision and more dependent on their own natural strength. He has trieil to 

strengthen the relation- between the faculty and the student body by eliminating 

many of the unnatural restraints between these groups. A believer in cooperation 

among the faculty, student-, and the administration! President Baker has sought to 

CO-ordinate the activities of these groups, in his own words, "to create a neater 


Behaving that the college, as s state supported institution, should rentier def in i te 

service to the commonwealth, President Haker has directed the resources of the 
college to the aid of the state. During the spring term, he organised courses and 
Conferences in community recreation designed to alleviate the pr o ble m s of idleness 

caused by unemployment and at the same time to continue the programs tor play- 
grounds discontinued because of depleted finances in the towns and cities of the 
state. By frequent trips to the state's capital, he has tried to make ordial the hostile 

attitude on the part ol [he legislators ot the state toward the college. Through in- 
numerable s|>eechcs to clubs, societies, and organizations, and through radio talks to 
the people of the slate he has made the members of the commonwealth more con- 
scious of the Massachusetts Slate College. 

la regard to the physical plant of the college, President Haker has alreadv made 
improvements. The new heating system, the renovation of the offices in South 
College, the inauguration of the new store in North College, and the change in the 
housing of the department of home economics are aiding to felicitate the purely 
physical b uriness of the college. Through negotiations with state and federal govern- 
ment-, he is attempting to provide for the expansion of the college by the prop sjed 
const met i >n of a new dormitory and a new library. 

nreiMtnt Haker has already revealed many of his educational Indicts. He said 
in his greeting to the student Ixxly published last February, ". . . we must all con- 
centrate to the utmost on the development here at the college of a tolerant spi it of 
sound scholarship and on the projection into the state of the l»cst we rave to give 
in helping it to meet in a sensible way the puzzling problems of social and economic 
readjustment." He l>clicve- in education for social service. He believes in education 
for efficiency. He lielieves in training men and women to live more capably, to work 
more efficiently, and to serve other men and women more fully. 

Reviewing the things he has accomplished and the things he has attempted to do, 
the creation of a greater college, the rendition of service to the state, the union of 
students, facalty, alumni, and administration, and the training of efficient men and 
women we can sav that Pre-ident Haker has revealed himself as an executive who 
has accomplishe I a great deal, and as an executive who shall try to accomplish more 
for the crea.ion of the 'greater college" at Massachusetts State. 

Remember!! The following bit of verse 
was dipped from the Dartmouth Jack- 
O-Luntern of December, 1930:

With the arrival of the new leisure and the repeal of prohibition, many old prob- 
lems have arisen once again. With more leisure for the ma— e- of the American people 
and th? return of intoxicating drinks, the age old evils of intemperance and drunken- 
f crime and the sin- resulting from drink must be faced anew. To us, it appears 
that education a- an institution concerned with the moral, intellectual and physical 
welfare of the American people must meet tins probl em . The questions arie, How? 

The sole sol ition to this question, as everyone admits, lies in education. The 
American people must lie taught to see in drinkenness and intemperance the greatest 
of dfiaf » -in equal in seriousness to that of adultery or rape. The CUStOffl of 

Conde mn ing over-drinking must be created through the forces of public opinion. As, 

for example, the humorous treatment of the drunkard, the tolerance toward his sins 
must be at>olishe I. The drunkard is no humorous figure: he is a tragic creature, one 
to be pitied, and the tradition of treating him on the stage as a comic must be abolished. 

A^ain, the American people must he taught that leisure hours are not to be spent 
in idlenes-, not in drinking but in other things. Vocational education, which has 
Stressed Specialisation and whrifa even now is obsolete in its principles, must give 
way in our C .lieges to lil>eral education in order that our collegiate men and women 
may I* taught how to use their unoccupied hours. Courses in which the principles 
of correct living are embodied must lie put into the curriculums not only of our high 
school- and coll e g e s but also of our primary schools. Courses in art, in the methods 
of -lience. in literature, in music, in methods of employing unoccupied hours, must 
be given. Leisure must l»e considered not as a time for idleness and rest but as a 
time for attempting to understand the world of men and women, for a time to know- 
more al>out the universe, for a time in which to enjoy its purer plea-in 

Education must carry to our people the realization that the simple life is the 
better lift, that the life without the complexities of the world is the more satisfactory.

lecture and said: "Ocntleincn, we have

The news is gathered and reporter! by- 
three representatives from each of the 
campi. The representatives from this 
campus were suggested and chosen by 
Professors Rand and Clatfelter as those 
probably most capable of retiorting the 
events of daily interest on this campus of 
which so many are unaware. They are: 
Roliert Jackson, Donald Chase-, and 
Arthur Greene, all of the class of 1934. 

S|>oriing interest will lie a special fea- 
ture of this paper because the two men's 
colleges have long been rivals on the field, 
track diamond, and gridiron. Fraternity 
and sorority sports are to l>e covered and 
the story and summary of the games will 
be published every day after the contest 
takes plate. 

Lastly, once a week at least an editorial 
will appear from each campus, written 
either by one of the representatives or by 
someone else on the campus in a position 
to state an opinion or to discuss current 
topics of both local and national interest.

Despite popular allegations, there are 
a few persons in the world believing 
college students worry. A study by a 
psychology class at Purdue University 
conducted over a period of years revealed 
that 56% of the students were worried 
about their studies. Furthermore, 40' of 
them are reported worried al>out money. 
Family affairs have 21* of the under- 
graduates perplexed; social affairs 17$, 
and religion of*. The report shows only 
\2% of the students are worried about 
affairs of the heart. — Allegheny Campus 

In a questionnaire given recently to the 
freshman class at Tyler County High 
School, Middlebourne, it was discovered 
that twenty students did not know the 
meaning of the words "fraternity" and 
"sorority," and the other twenty guessed 
so badly that they missed the point 
entirely. — Athenaeum 

Students who have entered colleges 
since the depression have hung up an 
all-time record for scholarship, according 
to the dean of Dartmouth. "In former 
years," he said, "about 70 freshmen 
flunked out at the end of the first year, 
while this year only 5 failed.

The University of Chicago has an- 
nounced another revolutionary idea. The 
purpose of the plan is to remove the over- 
lapping of courses in the last two years 
of high school and the first two of college. 
In order to carry out this plan, the dean 
of the college will oversee the work done 
in the junior and senior years in high 
school and the freshman and sophomore 
years of college. Thus the college would 
become a two-year unit, from which the 
scholarly-minded students would go on 
to university work. — Oherlin Reinew

When a French girl has reached the age 
where she can go to an institution of 
higher learning, she is considered old 
enough to direct her own affairs, and 
consequently is under no supervision 
from the school authorities. 

That is the observation of W. F. Hoyt, 
instructor in French at Syracuse Univer- 
sity. Mr. Hoyt has traveled through the 
countries of southern Europe and is 
familiar with French customs and life. 

Mr. Hoyt commented on the fact that 
the French school system is a centralized 
institution under the minister of educa- 
tion. The New York State system is 
patterned after the French organization. 

The French universities are all post- 
graduate institutions and the students 
attending are graduates of the Lycee, 
which corresponds to our prep schools. 
There are no fraternities or sororities 
there, but the groups of foreign students 
organize into societies which have about 
the same social life as our fraternities. 

According to Mr. Hoyt, the French 
women are rapidly becoming more inde- 
pendent and the number of girls enrolled 
in French institutions of higher education 
is increasing. The parents still pick out 
the husband for the French girl, but she 
may go against their wishes if she is so 
inclined, although such action is rare.

Under the direction of George Simmons 
and Lillian Jackson, active members of 
the 4-H Club, the Farley 4-H Club House 
was dedicated on July 27, 1938 at Masse

attendants were President Hugh P. 
Haker, Director Munson .it the Extension 

Service, Miss Gertrude Warren, of the 
United States Dept. of Agriculture and 
Dr. (jilliert, Commissioner of Agricul- 
ture, all of whom addressed the body. 

Plans for the 4-H Club House on the 
campus were started five years ago, when 
Mr. Farley saw the need of such a build- 
ing. At that time funds were laid aside to 
be used in the construct KM of the build- 
ing which, as far as research proves, n 

the first of its kind Oil any college campus 
in the United Stales. The construction 
crew was made up ol 4-H Club boys who 
volunteered their services, along with 
those of Bernhard Dirks, an architect ol 

Up to the day of the dedication the 
building had no official name, but by 
unanimous consent of the 4-H Club mem- 
bers and college officials, the building was 
dedicated as the Farley 111 Club House. 
in honor of George L. Farley, the State 
leader. The Club House will be the 
center of activity at the state club camp 
and plans are already being made for 
making use ol it as a social and rci ic.i 
tional center during the school year tor 
the use of students and faculty.

Springfield Republican Publishes 

Story of Fraternity Boarding 


Debating Society 
To Hold Meeting 

(From Springfietd Republican of Oct. 1) 
It is i poor dtureaaioB that doesn't get 
everybody at one time or .mother. And 
now it is the plaint of the boardtag-houac 
keeper* in the vicinity of the State Col- 
lege, where practically every fraternity 
house on the campus is running its own 
dining hall and two sororities have just 
opened their own private dining dubs. 
These private dining h Us were sponsored 
by the fad that students found it hard 

to finance their campus life, and a dollar 

or two cut each week from the hoard bill 

helped to bring the total expenee down 
i,, .i more reasonable level. The private 
clubs can operate at a smaller charge per 
boarder, simply because they are not 

obliged to make a profit 

The situation was forced last spring, 
when a considerable number of boys on 
the campus found themselves where they 
would either have to cut their board bills 

or leave college. They took things in 

their own bands and started dining on a 
small scale in their houses. The adminis- 
tration was faced with a situation which 
had to be recognized. The capacity of 
the college dining hall is 000 and during 
parts of Hal vear there were 1200 per- 
sons on the campus wanting something 
to eat, and this number does not include 
the army ol clerks, student instructors 
And unmarried faculty members. In 
order to conform with the times, the 
weekly cost ol board at the college dining 
hall W i- lowered to 16.50. If the boarding 
houses had adopted a similar program, 
the situation might have been saved. 

As it is, there are nine fraternities on 
the campus, ei^ht of which are operating 
their own tables, with an average of 22 
men to the table. The two sororities are 
feeding slightly more than .'{•) of their 
members. The table is operated by 
student help entirely, including the ad nal 
preparation of the food, and the other is 
managed by a graduate student member 
of the sorority, with assistance from the 
members, each girl having certain duties 
at definite times. Lvery one ot the men's 

boarding dubs is operating with a hired 


Curry Hicks, chairman of the commit- 
tee on private boarding clubs, was un- 
able to state the average price being 
diarged for board in the houses, since 
the reports .ire not all in, but last spring 

an average of W prevailed. It will prob- 
ably run about that this year. 

The change in boarding customs is felt 
keenly by those who have for years 
operated boarding houses, principally for 

the benefit of students, "Ma" Goodwin, 
proprietor of the boarding house on 
Pleasant street, next door to the Aggie

The Massachusetts State College de- 
bating society will hold its first meeting 
of the vear Wednesday, October 11, at 
g p.m. in the Senate Room at the Mem- 
orial building. 

There is every indication that the 
men's debating team will be as successful 
as it was last year when it had an un- 
defeated season. Only two members of 
last year's varsity team were lost by 
graduation J. Makon Fowler and Ash- 
ley Gurney. Four m emb ers of the team, 
Hogden '34, Donelly '36, Gold '36 and 
Hill '34 have returned and these men will 
probably do most of the debating this 
coming season. 

However, anyone who is qualified is 
assured of a place on the team. All juniors 
who are interested in debating should re- 
port at this first meeting, as a position of 
assistant manager is open for competition. 
Due to a decrease in funds available for 
the use of the society, there will be no 
radio debates broadcast from local sta- 
tions. The rest of the schedule will re- 
main intact as in former years with one 
campus debate, a trip to Springfield, and 
I trip through the Middle Atlantic 
States during the spring vacation. 

The women's varsity team is also 
looking forward to a successful season. 
This team first appeared on campus last 
year winning from the University of New 
Hampshire and losing to Boston Univer- 
sity. Miss Murphy, one of the members 
ol last year's team, graduated in June. 
Miss Whitton '35, captain of the team 
last year, will lead the team again this 


The Convocation period on Thursday, 
March 1, has been secured for a women's 
debate. The purpose of this meeting is 
to familiarise the students of the College 
with the fine wotk of which this team is 
capable. There will also be a trip of un- 
known extent during the Spring vacation. 
All women who have had experience in 
debating or in public speaking or any 
who are interested in acquiring this ex- 
perience at college are invited to attend 
this first meeting. 

In order that more students may have 
working op|»ortunities, a Special Emer- 
gency Fund of $2,500 was created at the 
start of the school year by the Legislature 
to provide the needy students with 
Working Scholarships. This money, which 
is in the hands of the treasurer of the 
college, must be expended before Nov. 
30, 1933. the end of the college fiscal year. 
In addition, an employment service has 
been created with Emory Grayson, Prof. 
Glatfelter, and Miss Hamlin as the per- 
sonnel. Emory Grayson is to have charge 
of this service and will care for Stock- 
bridge students. Professor Glatfelter will 
care for the four-year men students as 
well as the working scholarships, while 
Miss Hamlin will assist the women 

Limiting of these working scholarships 
to $30, to be earned before Noveml)er 30, 
was considered necessary in order to pro- 
vide the greatest number of jobs to the 
greatest number of students. Assign- 
ments have been made to various depart- 
ments and some students commenced 
their duties liefore the opening of school. 
Although the present fund expires Nov. 
SO, it is hoped that another fund will be 
created so that the present working op- 
portunities may be continued throughout 
the school year. 

In order to fulfill the purposes for which 
it was established, the Placement service 
will maintain a file of all needy students 
so that they may have first chance. Con- 
tacts have been made with the faculty 
and with the townspeople to provide as 
large an opening as possible. 

Students desiring work are requested 
to file hour plans with either Professor 
Glatfelter or Miss Hamlin, as calls fre- 
quently come in for work during spare 

In addition to student employment 
activities, contacts are being made with 
industry to provide employment for the 
present senior class.

ever, half her tables are unoccupied, her 
help has been accordingly reduced. The 
bulk of her patrons are clerks and young 
faculty. Mrs. Elizabeth Newkirk, at 8f> 
Pleasant street, has been in business for 
eight years, and previously set her table 
for from 80 to 70 patrons. She depended 
on student cooks, but this year because 
students who were trained in that capa- 
city were employed elsewhere, has been 
forced to hire a chef and her income has 
been seriously cut. Other boarding places 
are feeling the same effects and are labor- 
ing under a legitimate complaint. They 
pretty well controlled the situation for the 
past half-dozen years, and now like 
hundreds of fellow citizens, are feeling 
the backwash of the worst economic de- 
pression the town ever experienced. They 
are taking a drastic salary cut, as it were, 
belatedly, it is true. 

The new plan offers work to two or 
more students in each fraternity, as the 
bulk of the work is done by them, as 
assistant cooks, dishwashers, waiters and 
what not. The administration feels that 
the plan, if operated according to sched- 
ule, will be a good thing from a financial 
point of view and possibly as a health 
measure. All freshmen are required to 
eat at the college dining hall, except those 
who eat at home. 

Women attending the American uni- 
versities are more religious than men, it 
is shown by tests given to 62$ of the 
undergraduates of Rochester University 
by the Joint Student-Faculty committee 
on the Institute of Religion. 

The results showed that 801 of the 
students tested were church members. 
Sixty-eight percent were Protestant, 20^ 
Catholic, and 10? Jewish. Thirty-four 
percent of the men were rated as "athe- 
istic," but only 8% of the women came 
under the same category. 

On a scale from to 11, representing 
strong religious attitude toward Cod, 
11 representing extreme atheistic atti- 
tude, 70 women students had an average 
score of 3.o, while 146 men students rated 
4.0. Thirty-four percent of the co-eds felt 
need tor help on religious problems, but 
only 25 % of the men. Ministers were the 
most frequent source of such aid. 

In a similar scale for attitude toward 
the church, freshmen rated 2.95, as com- 
pared with 4.1 for seniors. However, the 
drop in regular church attendance from 
first to last college year was only 6% for 
men and 1% for women. 

Before entering college, 66$ of the men 
attended church regularly and an addi- 
tional 23% frequently, but after admission 
these figures dropped off to 33£ and 19$. 
There was a 350$ i icrease in the number 
of men who never attended church and a 
250$ increase in women. 

Decrease in regular church attendance 
was 36$ for Protestants, 10$ for Catholics, 
and 94$ for Jews, but there were only 16 
of the last denomination who went to 
church regularly before entering college. 
Fifty-two percent of the women planned 
to take a course in religion, and only 12$ 
of the men. However, 27 men planned to 
enter religious vocations as compared to 

Hi women. 

— The Campus 

According to Dr. William H. Davis, 
leader of the college band for the coming 
year, and Ralph Henry '34, manager, 
prospects for an excellent marching and 
concert organization are unusually good 
for the ensuing year. A wealth of playing 
talent has been uncovered in the fresh 
man class and the first rehearsal, held in 
the Memorial building last Thursday 
evening, gave promise of a first class 
appearance when the band makes i's 
debut in the inauguration parade 

Announcement has been made that re- 
hearsals will be held every Thursday at 
7.30 p.m. in the Memorial building, and 
all players who attend rehearsals promptly 
and regularly will be awarded academic 
credits toward the medals given for excel- 
lence in extra-curricular activities. The 
band will be sent to various away-from- 
home football games if enough interest is 
shown among the members to warrant 
such trips, the Worcester Tech game on 
October 28 being the first opportunity for 
the musicians to travel. Last year the 
band made over sixteen creditable ap- 
pearances under student direction solely, 
having played at Medford, the majority 
of home games, and during rallies and 
programs at Bowker Auditorium. 

Dr. Davis, who is an important figure 
in the Botany department, has consented 
to lead the college band after an absence 
from such campus activity of several 
years. Dr. Davis is a professional clari- 
netist of wide lepute, having been con- 
nected with the American Legion Band 
of Northampton for many years. Ralph 
Henry, enjoying his second year as mana- 
ger of the organization, was for some time 
a staff 'cellist and saxophonist for station 
WNAC in Boston. Herbert Warfel, 
professor of zoology, has also offered his 
time as a performer on the bass horn, 
having played in the 110-piece Univer- 
sity of Oklahoma band as part of his 
musical experience. 

All instrumentalists who desire to play 
in the band are urged to attend the next 
rehearsal. Meetings will end promptly at 
9 p.m. for those who wish to continue 
with other activities. Certain instruments 
owned by the college will be loaned to 
players on receipt of a five dollar deposit, 
which will be returned when the instru- 
ment is handed in.

the students to attend to [>eisonally. 
The Memorial building is the most con- 
venient plate for students to welcome 
their visitors, ami by registering here, the 
Dads may obtain a free football ticket. 
The military exhibition, arranged by 
Colonel Rorneyn, is to illustrate what the 
major activities in this department are. 
The reception held in the Memorial 

building is for the purpose of acquainting 

the Dads with his son's or daughter's 
instructors and professors. A large num- 
ber of the D.ids tan be accommodated at 
the fraternity dining halls, for which ar- 
rangements should be made in advance; 
but for those who do not attend a fra- 
ternity luncheon, a meal can be obtained 
at the college cafeteria. At 6.20 p.m., a 
special Dad's Day supper will be served 
for 50 cents, at the cafeteria. 

Graduate School 

Enrollment Is 90 

At present the enrollment in the gradu- 
ate school has reached 90, though this is 
not the final figure. This year graduates 
come from Illinois, Pennsylvania, Mary- 
land, Colorado, Ohio, New Jersey, New- 
York, Alabama, Kentucky, Washington, 
North Carolina, Oregon, Connecticut and 
New Hampshire. 

The present enrollment does not show 
the increase which has marked previous 
years. No doubt this decrease is trace- 
able to the raisetl tuition. The out-of- 
state enrollment is especially small, due 
to the comparatively high non-resident 
tuition. Education and chemistry are 
still in the lead of the subjects in which 
the graduate students select their major. 
Last week the graduate student body 
at its organized meeting elected Paul D. 
Isham, president and M. C. Darnell, 
secretary and treasurer.

ami Captain Louis Hush of Slate are old

that he never played football OT any other 
sport while in high school, yet he is this

eleven. Hubbard is the son of John 
Hubbard, fullback, the mosi famous 

football player ever to graduati from 

Amherst College. Hubbard, senior, was 
chosen by Walter Camp 00 his All 

American team of 1809, and from 191 1

of Hob Murray '36 from competition this 
fall. With the meet at TuftS scheduled 

for Saturday, a great burden has been 
placed upon Coach Derby to find capable 

runners to replace Murray, who was the 
outstanding star of last yea.'s cm- 
country team as well as the holder of the 
college recon 1. 

In Spite ot the series ,,| cat ast rophies 
which has Siruck the Maroon and White

rounding into shape in preparation for 
the meeting with State's arch rival. Con- 
cerning the withdraw! of bob Murray

reported that bob is commuting this 

year U-tween Holyoke and the college.

that Coach Derby may have a new star 
in the person of Wall Stepat ':{•">, transfer 
from Northeastern last year, and enjoy- 
ing his first year of varsity competition 
under the Maroon and White colors. 
Stepat stepped off the five mile varsity 
course in 21:68, which time is within 5H 
seconds of the course record, and 15 
seconds faster than the time which 
Murray made last year in his time trials.

Coach Mel Taube 

With the appointment of Mel Taube as 
basketball coach, the fate of the tlnee 
major sports will be in the hands of one 
man. Mel, a lhree-s|Kir( man at Purdue, 
has had great success with the football 
an. I baseball teams, ami has had a wealth 
of experience in the court game. I It- 
played basketball for Purdue from 1024- 
l'.tjt. and was a member of the Purdue 
hoop team which t'ud wi.h Mulligan lor 
the big Ten Conference championship. 

For some unknown reason, the l c .i:W 
basketball schedule has been cut to 12 
games. Much discussion of this fact has 
been heard on campus, many lamenting 
that the slttdellts of State do not have 
an Opportunity to see the varsity hoop 
Mers in action enough. Live home games 

are scheduled.

the Tufts runners. There has Iieen no

quarters this year, consequently it is not 
possible to make any predictions as to 
Saturday's outcome. Coach Derby was

structure containing lot) double com- 
bination study and bedroom. On the 
first Boot is a library or "quiet" room; 
and a large recreation room, kitchenette,

That the State College needs these two 
buildings is evidenced by the fact that 
the two buildings, North and South 

College, serving as dormitories, were 

built in lK8f> and 1867 respectively, 
when the college had a very much smaller 
enrollment. Within the last five years, 
the student enrollment has increased 51? 
and there are now approximately 958 
men scudents for which dormitory space 
to the extent of 115 students only is 
available. This has necessitated students 
taking rooms at great distances from the 
college under doubtful sanitary and social 

Most urgently needed on this campus, 
the report states, is a library. In 1902, 
there were 27,(KX) volumes and ISO stu- 
dents; at present there are 93,000 vol- 
umes and 1200 students; all of this with 
the same library. In addition, the present 
library is not fireproof and as the present 
building contains volumes valued at 
$5<)0,(XM), much of which is not replace- 
able, it is considered that the need for a 
new library is very great. Both of the 
new buildings are of fireproof construction 
and are part of a long term building plan 
of the college to cope with the ever in- 
creasing enrollment.

any consideration. They are apparently 
undeserving of notice and comment. But, 
tidiness and cleanliness of dress are 
qualities that are very worthy and make 
for a favorable impression. 

A large number of each year's entering 
class do not find it necessary to be inter- 
viewed personally, because they have 
fulfilled the requirements of admission 
through the regular channels of corre- 
spondence. It was not difficult to elicit 
from Mr. Lanphear incidents of a humor- 
ous nature which he has met in his work. 
Pointing at a large folio case stuffed with 
letters he said, "I have here letters which 
I have kept for my own satisfaction . . . 
there is life with its burdens and joys, 
frustrations and hopes." Opening the 
cast he took a letter from it, and read 
excerpts. By inference from what was 
read it was apparently a letter from some 
student not too well prepared lor college 
(the spelling was at great fault I, seeking 
minutest details concerning M.S.C. Alter 

a pretentious address the letter went < 
to ask the exact day college would ope 
and having learned the institution wa 
co-educational, wanted to know if h, 
might have a room to himself. Fion 
another letter from some abitious, know 
l ege m iring youngster there were d 
tailed questions about board and room 
There then followed a raft of question 
dealing with domestic problems, amon, 
which was asked how to rid his home o 
household pests, including black ants. 

It was easy to understand why Mr 
Lanphear "kept these for my own sati 
faction." All of the excerpts he read wer t 
not of such an amusing nature. Out 
letter in particular from some splendit 
young lady told of her life long hope 
being frustrated. She won a smal 
scholarship but it was insufficient to tej 
her through college. Her father had bet 
thrown out of work and sickness had conw 
into the family. The letter had a tone o 
despair, almost of desperation. Her lettc 
gave every indication of being one frou 
a scholarly and ambitious young woman 
As evidenced by Mr. Lanphear's tone 
such letters (and he gets many of thi: 
kind i, visibly move him. He at thi 
moment revealed in no uncertain manne 
his truly sympathetic, human under 
standing and deep desire to help. 

Those students who, in his opinion 
tend to .>e most successful in college, are 
those who have early de ve lop e d a dec, 
desire for an education — as early as high 
school days or earlier. There is hardl 
another office on campus that gets quit* 
as close a view of human nature as doe 
the Admission's Office.

Approximately 350 Fathers to Come 

for Event Which Originated at 

Univ. of New Hampshire 

Expecting approximately 350 Dads, the 
Oad's Day committee has completed 
final arrangements for the annual Dad's 
Day this Saturday. Fraternities have 
l>een rehearsing for their part of the pro- 
gram for the past week. 

Dad's Day was originated in the Uni- 
versity of New Hampshire in 1925, and 
the custom once established at that insti- 
tution spread throughout the East and 
Middle West. This year the University 
of New Hampshire, of which Former 
President Lewis of this college is now the 
head, held their Day last Saturday. 

In describing the first observance of 
Dad's Day a writer of The New Hamp- 
shire, collegiate weekly of the New 
Hampshire University, in the issue of 
October 15 says, "Dads, Dads, Dads.

Harold Potter '34, recipient of a Hood 
Dairy Scholarship last fall, has been 
awarded another $200 Hood Dairy- 
Scholarship, offered to men and women at 
Massachusetts State College. The fol- 
lowing men have been awarded $100 
scholarships: William Mulhall '35, Allan 
Matties '3d and John O. Walker '30 

The scholarships are awarded to stu- 
dents "whose aim is definitely set to 
promote farming as a life opportunity, 
particularly in the production of milk," 
and last year were awarded to Ralph 
Bkkford '33, Harold C. Potter '34 and 
Frederick N. Andrews '35. These awards 
were made possible through the gift of 
Dr. Charles H. Hood. 

Dr. Hood's gift provides for scholar- 
ships to be awarded to a member of each 
of the four undergraduate classes. The 
senior, junior and sophomores have been 
announced, and the freshman scholarship 
will be awarded in February. These 
scholarships are restricted to major stu- 
dents in the division of agriculture and to 
students specializing in some phase of 
dairy industry promotion in the junior 
.ind senior years.

Margolin '."52 took a southern trip to 

investigate the negro-white situation in 

North Carolina and the mining condi- 

is in West Virginia. 

On the way South the group stopped 

Washington and had an opportunity 

to visit Vice President Garner and his 

cohorts in action just before the Senate 

adjourned. According to one of the stu- 

dents it was "noisier than any fraternity 
ting." Continuing on to Durham, 

N. C., the group studied the problem of 

rO education in this state, the IttOSl 

rressive of the southern states. Talk- 

to several negro ministers, these 

students discovered that most of them 

were graduates of northern colleges who 

returned to help their own race. 

Interviewing the negro lawyers who are 

nulling the test case of a negro student 

who wanted to enter l he State University 
in order to Study journalism which 
not taught in the negro colleges, ihe 
State College party was introduced to the 
great problem of negro-white education in

supported college for negro -indents much 
farther advanced than any other southern 

colored university. However, when a 
negro student sought admission to the 

state universit y, one <>! t he most respei ted 
men of the state made a speech in which 

he advised the state not to bothet its 
head about this student. "Let him (liter

stones will do the rest '"

Carolina State College tor Negnie- and

that the salaries ot these teachers were'

According to a news item, Bowdoin

of postage provided for" in Section 1103. Act of October. 1917. authorized August 20. 1918. 


Impressed with the formalism, the pomp and the ceremony of President Baker's 

inauguration, we scan lied beneath the outward appearances to find the meaning 

under the show. We searched hut found nothing. Finally we understood the mean- 
ing ol tin- formality when we heard Governor Kly say that the American people 
were in the "dangerous age of education." Underetaading that the pomp and cere- 
mony oi this educational gathering on our campua was more or kern characteristic ol 

the entire pro, CM ol .-dm ation iu America, we came to the conclusion that education 
itself was in a dangerous age, 

With its great personnel, with its huge physical plants, and with its vast financial 

outlays, education is, as Commissioner Graves said, the greatest industry in America. 
Like all abnormalities, there is danga in this overgrowth ol education. This over- 
development, this grandoise size are qualities of education at ■ period, like the period 

of puberty in the growth of children, that is dangerous. Pompous and ceremonious 
as President Bakers inauguration was, it was not as pompOUS and ceremonious ft* 
many an educational convention. About the educational process, there has gTOWU up 

a tori of heraldry ol titles and degrees most of them superfluous and valueless. There 

M as much formality in the educational process, in educational happenings as there 

w, t > in the courts oi old Europe. This formality is another quality of the dangerous 

in which education DOW IS. 

Because education is so vast, so all-reaching, it has become formalised, c lassi f i ed 
and systematized to do its work. There is a formal procedure about everything, the 
strict adherence to rules and regulations, the following of decrees. These things are 
tedious and characteristic of institutionalised education. All knowledge has Keen 

Classified. Nothing is human any more. PhUosoph) tin- way of life is labelled 
and sectioned. Life ilsclt has every part named. The tact that form counts much 
more than content reveals again that we arc in the dangerous age ol education. Sys- 
tems, methods, and theories are qualities making up our great educational process. 

Even act is systematised. Nothing occurs except conformably to a system. Ever) 
wa\ of teaching is a method, ami methods crush the human element. In its formality, 
its classification, in its systems, education is today but a vast impersonal machine 
lor grinding out inexorably its product the so-called educated man. 

With it- sise, its pomposity, its impersonality education has become a tedious 
thing. The pro, ess ol learning in w hods and colleges and universities is a laborious 

ta-k; the student niibl wade through course after course, stuck alter studs, c\ 
animation after examination, and when he has hi- degree, the student finds he know- 
so little of worth and so much of the worthless. This, too, is a quality of the dangerous 
age in which clti, at ion now IS. 

To grow out of thi~ dangerous age, education must shift its emphasis from the 
group to the individual, from methods and systems to tea, her-, from the mass to the 
man. To eliminate- this need of formalism, this artificial classification, the process of 
educating must be simplified. Education must be unified because it has too many 

appendage- irrelevant to it- purpose; it must be simplified because there are too 
many complications in learning; and made entire becaii-c it repeats it-elf too much. 

Onewa) out of this morass is suggested bj Dr. Henrj MacCracken of Vassar College: 
"The sciences have ceased to subdivided and have- begun to cooperate in an effort 

toward -\ntlie-i- and it would be well if the -ocial st udie- and language would do the- 

tame. It is a needle— waste of effort to have courses in the- French, the- < ierman, and 
the English novel within the- -aim- college, jn-t as the aesthetic principles of the line 
arts are needlessly taught over and over again in the elementary course of each art. 
It would be well if all historical course- were in the department of history, or else 
the- history department abolished except lor an elementary course in historical

Banquet Friday but the inevitable pro-

Last term, in the sophomores Qualita- 
tive Tab, "Pop" Serex was greatly aroused 
by the excessive use of chemicals, es- 
pecially alcohol. He cried out, "You 
fellows would be more careful if you had 

to buy your own alcohol." A bright 
sophomore popped up: "We do now!" 


"Doctor Baker leaves the- de-.uisliip of 
the- New York State College e.l Forestry 
at Syracuse with OW deep regret, but he 
is taking with him the sincere ion, 
reaped and blessings of us all. Admirably 
fitted by natural ability and experience, 
a distinguished scholar and prolessor, 
strikingly successful in many fields of 
education and business, attractive and 
characterful in all his personal relations, 
Hugh P. Baker is preeminently qualified 
to become President of Massachusetts 
Stale College. No more worthy incum- 
bent could be found." 

— Commissioner Graves 

of the State of New York 

"There has been, particularly in the 
past few years, a new spirit upon this 
campus. More and more students have 
come here searching for something deeper 
and more significant than the practical 
courses in agriculture and the mechanic- 
arts. The change in the name of the 
college, is in a small way symbolic of 
what one faculty member has called a 
Renaissance at Massachusetts State. 
This new life, this re-birth, has brought 
with it various results. . . It was only 
last year that a science professor on our 
own campua wrote: 'Eternal truth, 
eternal beauty, and a law of perpetual 
transformation are writ plain upon the 
face of nature.' If the youth in the college 
today can study the physical and bio- 
logical sciences, and see beyond the mer- 

factual material to their deeper meaning, 

if he can pursue his studies disinterestedly 
and dispassionately, attempting to in- 
terpret and to judge all things in t he 
light of his own many-sided experience 
then the scientific discipline- can give the 
student a comprehensive view of life. 

"Not training for citizenship, not 
preparation for a belter job, not the 
acquisition of a degree, but the pursuit 
of knowledge for its own sake is the true 

ideal of education. . .

Returning home through the Blue 
Ridge mountains, they stopped in the 
bituminous coal regions of Fair mount, 

\\ . \'a. and learned at first hand the truth 
aboul the shocking conditions which exist 
in company-controlled coal mines, where 
worker- arc penned In with fences In the 

communities with armed guards to pre- 
vent any communication with outside 
persons. However, the Massachusetts 
investigators obtained admission to the 
village and were able to talk with guards, 
strikers and later to blacklisted union 
men, thus gaining a large supply of ma- 
terial on the deplorable mining situation 
iu the south. 

From the Connecticut i'ampus, the 

official organ of the Connecticut State 

College: "In Conn. State football last 
\ training rule-s were flagrantly ami 

openly broken. 'The members of the 
squad smoked so frequently thai they 

found it more- profitable to use the tins 
instead ol .the ordinary small packages. 
They seemingly took pride in smoking 
huge quantities of tobacco in the pres- 
ence oi fellow students!" 

We are happy to say that Taube- 

coached teams have always been in the 
best of condition. Mel does not la> 

down strict training rules but he has 
been successful in instilling the idea into 
the heads of his plavcrs that "a man 
cannot play good ball if he does not take 
cue- of himself and anyone interested in 
playing football will know enough to take 
care of himself." Don't tell Mel but we

"I sometimes think that wc are in the 
dangerous age of education. Our univer- 
sal system oi free schools, and the re- 
quirement that every child attend them, 
has brought us. as a people, enough 
knowledge so that we are not satislic-,1 
with the simple existence ol our fore- 
fathers; and yet, that education has 
failed to reach, geiierallv shaking, the 
point where we love learning and know 1 
edge for its own sake. We have learned 
enough to become querulous and only 
partially satisfied with the present; and 

not enough to know and appreciate the

Professor Stowell C. Coding, Mr. 
Harold VV. Smart, and Mr. Vernon P. 
Helming have been designated as judges 
to decide the awards for the seven minute 
skits presented by the fraternities and 
sororities in the evening. A committee 
of Professor Frank Prentice Rand, W. 
Lawrence Schenck '34, and Burns Rob- 
bins "64 was appointed to take charge of 
the entertainment which will be held in 
Stoc kbridge Hall at 7.45 on Saturday 

At the Dad's Day celebration last year 
the prizes were awarded to the following 
fraternities: first, Sigma Phi Epsilon; 
second, Kappa Sigma; third, Lambda Chi 
Alpha; fourth, Theta Chi; honorable 
mention, Phi Zeta. Quoting Mr. Emery, 
who has charge of the whole affair, "the 
entertainment will consist of seven minute 
skits, some comic, some serious, some 
musical, some not so musical." 

These fraternity efforts are a part of 
the interfraternity cooni|>ctition for pos- 
session of the Dean's Cup, a silver trophy 
awarded annually to the fraternity ex- 
celling in academic and athletic- activities 
and in scholarship. Members of the 
college orchestra directed by Edgar

and after the entertainment. 


One rc-ult of the inauguration of President Uakcr last week was the revelation 
of the nature- ol this college a- it i- today. The struggle which has be-en going on at 

this college for many years seemed to have ceased and in the addresses ol the main 

Speakers the victor ot the struggle was revealed. 'Two opposing forces, one tending 
toward the- vocational ami agricultural college and the- other tending towaid the 
libe-ral and cultural college have been seeking supremacy in the policies of this coilc-gc- 
for many year-. At the inauguration the fact was disclosed that the liberal-cultural 

forces triumphed. This victory <»f the liberal-cultural force and the recognition of 
the college in newspapers <>t the state , t - "cultural" must make us wary of the future 

in regard to just this cultural aspect oi our institution. 

The individual i*-r>on, when a struggle between appetite and reason ceases, re- 
laxes hi- vigilance; he rc-t- after the battle; he enjoys the fruits of the victory. 
Often the enemy is regenerated and attacking the vie tor, the struggle begins again. 
Or on the other hand the vi< torious force in the personality degenerates into some- 
thing less noble than it was. In the group, a like proi ess occurs. One of the forces in 
the group triumphs and in victory is weakened, and having vanquished the enemy 
degenerates. So in this college, at the present time, the triumphant forces of the 
liberal-cultural education will no longer face the struggle. These forces will degen- 
erate and this true culture will become but a worldly culture, sought after for its 
pleasures, the gain it can bring. The- true culture will become- but sophistication and 
polish, a shallow Cttperficial pursuit of the humatiiti. ■-. 

However, this ' ion , an be prevented if the students who enter this in- 
stitution in the year- to , ohm- are given to understand the- true meaning of culture, 
as exemplified by Arnold; if they arc taught that the deeper culture is worth much 
more than tin < h-vcr sayings, the polished appearances, the superficial characteristics 
of certain tvpe- of c ulture- v. hie h exist in certain kinds of schools in America today. 

It happened at Massachusetts State: 
Even his best friends wouldn't tell 
him so he flunked the exam. 

In the 1 St h Century Prose class last 
week, Prolessor Prince narrated the fol- 
lowing: "One of the inns in London bore 
the- following sign One pence get drunk. 

Two pence, get dead drunk! And for a 
little more than two pence, get a straw- 
bed upon which to steep it oil!" 

"President Baker today enters t In- 
service of a College which has a worthy 
past, for which is indicated a future of 
expanding opportunity. As he enters the 
service of this College I greet him and 
welcome him to a State Department of 
Education which likewise may take pride 
in the service which it has rendered to the 
vouth of the State for nearly a hundred

The two later portraits are to be seen in 
the Memorial building at present. At 
one time the artist was <>n a trip to Spitz-

At present there are over forty mem-

orchestra with all parts represented. Some 
new -elections which are being handled 
now, arc: Sibelius' Finlandia, Mozart's

Led by Captain Dave Caird *34, Walt 
Stepat '35 and Ray Proctor '86, all of 
whom crossed the finish line hand in 
hand, an untried Massachusetts State 
College cross-country team strided its 
way to a 22-IW victory over Tufts College 
.it Medford last Saturday. The contest 
which was the first one of the season, and 
the first on Tufts home field in more than 
a dozen years, was a very satisfactory 
one in the eyes of Coach L. L. Derby. 

With Captain Caird and Bill Jordan as 
the only veterans from last year, and 
every other man on the squad running 
his first varsity race for the Maroon and 
White, the team shaped up pretty well in 
its first victory. Captain Caird and 
Stepat, two men who can be depended 
on in all meets, showed their team spirit 
in encouraging Ray Proctor all through 
the meet, and so well did they succeed, 
that Ray was right up with them at the 
finish. Cordon Bishop, another promis- 
ing sophomore, proved himself a plucky 
runner by placing ninth in spite of the 
heavy chest old which hampered him. 

No information is available concerning 
the St. Stephen's team which visits here 
Saturday. Last year State had no diffi- 
culty in overcoming the St. Stephen's 
team at as the Maroon ami 
White- harriers made the perfect score of 
15-40 in concpiering the Saints. Although 

State is not equipped with the same 

quintet of star runners as last year, 
namely Crawford, Murray, Caird, Crosby, 
md Little. Coach Derby feels that more 
,,! the same spirit and teamwork which 
characterized Saturday's meet will carry 
the- Maroon and White to its second 

, onsecutive victory.

Coach Larry Briggs' soccer team got 
off to a flying start for the 1833 season, 
trouncing Worcester Poly Tech on the 
upper field last Saturday, in a hard 
fought contest, ,'M. Last year the 
Maroon and White booters also defeated 
the Engineers and api>ear to be headed 
for another successful season. 

The play was all State during the con- 
test and the ball was continually in 
Tech's territory, brilliant defensive work 
by Hebel, Engineer fullback, and Sargent, 
goalie, prevented many more State score-. 
The Maroon and White forward line had 
many opportunities to score in the lust 
period but did not capitalize on them. 
The first goal was made by Wilson, out- 
side left for the Engineers, early in the 
second period. 

After but three minutes of the second 
half had elapsed, Jim Blackburn, State 
halfback, shot a long boot past Sargent 
to tie the score at one all. The play was 
fast for the next 20 minutes and Jackson, 
center forward finally booted another 
goal for the Briggsmen. Near the dose 
of t he- contest , Becker, Maroon ami White 
sophomore halfback, scored the final tally 
for State- on a long kick. 

Bob Jackson, Jim Blackburn and Ed 
Talbot turned in brilliant performances 
for State, while Hebel excelled for Tech.

JAMES A. LOWELL, Bookseller 

Doctor Radcliife's official statement: 
"Lou Bush will not play against 
Connecticut State this Saturday." 

Of all the State alumni who were de- 
lighted in the Taubenien's smashing 
victory over Howdoin lasj Saturday, no 
one equalled the enthusiasm of Dan 
Leary, captain of last year's grid eleven. 
Dan, now at G eorgetown Law, sent Mel 
Tattbe and his players a telegram before 
the Polar Bc-.irs game, wishing lliein a 
successful season and a win over Bowdoin. 

After a whole lot of snooping around, 
we finally discovered the reason for 
Bowdoin's poor showing against State. 
It seems that the Maine coaches take- 
good care of the health of their charges 

so they carried Maim- spring erater in 

live-gallon jugs along for the Howdoin 
athletes. Just before the start of the 
game, the last full jug was smashed by 
accident, and the poor Howdoin pl.tvers 

wen- forced to drink plain old Massachu- 
setts water! Too bad! What Coach 
Bowser said when he saw the broken jug 
turned the air blue over on the Howdoin 


In a comparison of the starting line-ups 

last Saturday, we find that Howdoin out- 
weighed the Maroon and White- eleven. 
The starting State line averaged 171 
pounds with a 1199 total poundage. The 
forward wall of the Polar Hears amassed 
a total of 1251 pounds for a IT'.* pound 

a v e r ag e. The State- backneld averaged 

156 |H)iinc|s with a 619 total poundage 

while- [he Howdoin backs totaled 698 
pounds for a 17.") [hxukI average. 

Lou Hush averaged about ten yard* 
per trip la-i Saturday, gaining 1-7 yards 
in 13 attempts. Johnny Conaotatti, his 

sub, made- I'.'.l yards in live- attempts lor 

an eight sard average. Hill T'rigard 

gained 32 yards in live- attempts for a 
six-yard average while Johnny Stewart, 
ophomore, playing his irst college con- 
test, averaged three yards per trip, 
Carrying the pigskin lor AS yard" gain in 

i-'; attempts, 

Harav.ille-. highlv touted Maine full- 
back could gain but 48 yards in Hi tries 
against the State- forward wall. Hurdeil 
gained :>,H yards in 13 attempts while 

Captain Hubbard made A2 yards in 17 
trips with the leather. Sumner, halfback, 

had the best ave-rage- among the- I'ol.u 
Hears, making 41 yards in four attempts 



After the opening victory against 
Howdoin, and without the services of 
Captain Lou Hush, the Maroon and 
White Wave- will swing down upon the 

stalwarts of Connecticut State- College 

on Alumni Lie-Id this Saturday as the 
feature of the Dad's Day program. Las) 

year, playing at Storrs, Maatachusetta 

State trounced a he-aw but inexiM-ricnc eel 
Nutmegger eleven, 39-0. It was a field 
day lor the Stale captain, Hush racing 
lor four touchdowns and Hill 1-rigaid 

collecting two. The- Taubemen com- 
pletely assumed the offensive, piling up 
16 tnsl downs to nine lor Connect iellt. 

Tin- Maroon and White- team will 
sorely miss the services of its leader and 
si. ir, Hush, who has played SUCh a vital 
part in the many State gridiron victories 
but a comparative judgment of the- two 

teams, places Massachusetts State as the 
probable victor. 

Connecticut Stale opened the season 

with a 19-6 rictOT) OVei the insurgent 

team, Cooper I'nion. The victoiv over 

the New Yorkers was the fust gridiron 

will the Nut meggers have- enjoyed since- 
1931. A strong Vermont team ran rough 
shod over the valiant Connecticut clcvi-n 
in its second contest, Vermont winning, 
36-6. Last Saturday Coach Dole's men 
fell victims to the determined attack of a 

new Weslevan eleven, losing, 19 (I 

Coach Dole- suffered a sever loss when 
Met ormiek, speedy halfback, broke- his 
ankle- iu the Cooper I'nion game- and was 

losi lot the remaindei of the season. Mow 

ever, the ehrven has been strengthened by 
the re-turn of Jules I'inski from crutches 
lo his tackle- pott while Likhald, a 
promising halfback, will occupy M< 
Cormiik's position. 'The- Connecticut 
eleven has been drilling on passing all 
this week, and will probably seek the- air 
in an attempt lo defeat the- Taube-mi-n 

Gold, Grimala and Captain toss have 

been snaring passes all week from Kellev 

and Cronin, in preparation for the game-. 

'The stars of the Nutmegger'i combine 

arc- Captain Coss at quarterback ami 

Cronin at fullback. Ed Coss is playing 

his eleventh year of football and his third 
captaincy of a football team. He cap 
taine-d his high school eleven and latter 
led Allenlown Prep, one of the leading 

prep school elevens in the- country. 

Cronin. al I scored against Coopei

.iiiei the first quarter, the Maroon and 
White- varsity football team hammered 

out a de-eisive 14-0 defeat over the 
highlv touted Polar Hears of Howdoin 
College on Alumni Field last Sat unlay. 
In the middle of the se-cond period, 
Johnnv Stewait, State sophoinoie hall- 
back, hurled a beautiful 20 yard pass to 

Captain Lou Hush, who scampei e,| lliiity 

yards for the fust Maroon and White 

score. Hill Irigard, husky fullback in his 
new role as a place-meiit kicker, boote-d 

the- extra point between the uprights to 
give- the- Taubemen a To lead. In the 

third session, Captain Hush led a 70-yard 
drive down the- field, State completing a 
Score when Stewart plunged over the- 
Howdoin line- for the second touchdown. 
Hill Trig. ml again converted lor the extra 
point. Shortly alter the second touch- 
down, Captain Hush was forced to leave 
the contest because of a kiu-e injury,

In the evening, Draper Hall was the 
scene of a formal banquet which was 
nevertheless pervaded with an atmos- 
phere less serious than that of the after 
noon. In his capacity as toast master, 
Philip W'hittemore '15, of Sunderland, 
presented the banquet as a wedding 
feast and continued the metaphor through 

out his introduction*. 

President Lewis of the University of 
New Hampshire, in concluding the eve- 
ning's list of speakers, chided both Dr. 
Baker and President King for their 
omission of Williams from the list of 
those who had helped the State College. 
Without Williams there would have been 
no Amherst, and no State, he reminded 
his audience. 

President Lewis also made mention of 
the sincere speech given in the afternoon 
by Alvin Ryan ".il on behalf of the stu- 
dents. "Yo«l are doing your job, sir, if 
you turn out boys of that kind," he said 
to President Maker. Mrs. Crete von

three more first downs but could not 
score. The Polar Bears in an effort to 
score, opened up in the second half with 
a series of spinner plays from the double- 
wing back formation but were woefully 
unsuccessful, netting but three first 
downs during the last half. 

The bright spot of the Maroon and 
White victory was the splendid perform- 
ances exhibited by the sophomores: 
Stewart was a vital part in the scoring of 
both touchdowns while Ed Soulliere and 
Elmer Allen turned in some hard running 
and stiff tackling in the backfield posi- 
tions. John Consolatti, Bush's substitute, 
performed superbly during the last 
quarter, while the work of Koenig and 
Sturtevant, two sophomores battling for 
the center position, was spectacular.

"Back to the Farm" Movement 
Gaining Momentum 

Because of the increased leisure time 

allotted tO the average industrial worker, 

and because of the uncertainty of in- 
dustry, there is going on in America at 
the present time a trek of the population 

from the city to the country. This con- 
dition is discussed by a writer in the 
New York Times of Sunday, October 15. 
In the article David Rozman is quoted. 
The Collegia* asked Professor Ko/man to 

explain this study of the movement. 

Dr. David Rozman recently made a 
st udy of the extent of part-time farming 

in this state. The townships of Ilolden 
and the Lowell, and Taunton areas were 
selected by him for his field of observa- 
tion. About 60,000 farming enterprises 
in this state are on a part time basis 
according tO observations made by Prof. 

Rozman, and he believes that part time 
farming is becoming increasingly com- 

President Roosevelt and his staff .ire 
trying to make the part-time farming plan 
attractive to the main industrial workers 

who have not been able to receive steady 
finplovment in our favorites. A $25,000, • 
'•'••I appropriation has been sel aside by 
Congress for the purpose of regulating 
the "back to the land" movement. At 
■ nt. the administration is starting 
several projects in which the unemployed 
people with previous agricultural experi- 
ence are organised in sell contained com 
unities, in order thai through tilling the 
'■I they may become partiallj s r ii 
supporting. The federal government in 
taking in hand the guidance ol the part- 
me farming movemenl has tried to co 
ordinate it with its plan for the decentral- 
ion of industry.

Alter two successful years "I Com- 
munity Concerts in Amherst, the local 
association is now formulating plana lor 
another season, The campaign for mem- 
bers lor the coming year will begin Oct. 

.'ill and will last lor one week. Alter that 

time no memberships will be received 
until the following year. Only members 

are admitted to the concerts, no tickets 

being sold at the door. 

Membership cards are issued b) the 

local organization and are good at any 

concert given by any Community Con- 
cert Association in the \'< ited States and

cities and towns having Community 

Concerts, Sp ring field and West held being 
the nearest. Many Amherst members 
attended the concerts by '.. aTMaCC 
Tibbett, Albert Spanieling and Harold 
Bauer at Springfield last year. 

The concerts to be given in Amherst 
will be decided upon by a local committee 
at the close of the drive. In this way it is 
known in advance just how much money 
there is to spend for the talent. The more 
members the local association has the 
belter the attractions which can be ob-

Carl Sandburg, as one oi America's

literary America with his poesaj of 

Chicago and the West. In Our Singing

"In 1914, Harriet Monroe's Poetry issued

Carl Sandburg. It included the ode to 
the- //cij; Hut, her fur the World. . . What 
light had any man to Ik- so hrutal in 
print, and what rij^ht had our most 

brutal dt) to such auotogies? How in the 

name of America could culture continue 
if it fell into the hands of Swedes and 
stevedores and pic keel up the slang of 
filthy Mid Western pavements? 

"One man, more than any other," Mr. 
M< Cum continues in his discussion ol 

Sandburg, "had been responsible for this

A timple college ceremony a! Amherst two weeks ago took on a significance which 

may have deep meaning to America'* C ol le ge youth. Indeed the inaugural of Hugh 

P.. iter Baker t<> head the State College was more than an inauguration. It was the 

dedication <>t an old institution t<> a wider service one that has a significance to us 

at Bates, wondering, as we are. whether we should lake an active interest now in 
the society another generation has nearly wrecked or whether we should wait, find a 
solace in book* alone, and then. 1 1 1 m >n graduation, discover a world selfish, corrupt, 

and heedlea* of refreshing ideas. We are s t a n d in g, unfortunately, without purpose, 
at the cm** road* of these two, Mass. State is not. Governor Ely and the -'-i college 

president- who participated must have wondered whether they were attending a 
wake or a revolution. The) *an a new college launched; "State," which announced 
to all thai the culture has been taken out of agriculture. 

(ihosts must have wept in this rededication away from the practical ideas ol the 
founders of the State Aggie. This change wis a student revolution, anil a rather vio- 
lent, if bloodless, one. It is still going on, says Louis Lyons of the Boston dVccV, and, 
lie continues, by far the most important addles- wa- delivered by the president of 

the Student Senate Alvan Ryan. He sounded the keynote ol revolt. 

"There has been," said Ryan, "a new spirit on this campus in the last few years. 
More and more students have come searching for something deeper anil more sig- 
nificant than the practical courses in agriculture ami mechanic arts. The change in 
the name is in a small way symbolic of what one faculty member has called a renais- 

Ryan went 00 daringly, according to Lyons, to challenge the new president, 
"who is a doughty-minded fellow, who thrives on challenges." 

"Those who have fought to widen the scope of the institution," Ryan said, "have 
met opposition at many hands. It seems to be high time that out of the conflicting 
notions about education, held by various members of this college, we develop an 
idea of education worthy of that name." 

The new president, naturally restricted by trustees, etc., must have nearly satis- 
fied young Ryan and fellow revolutionists when he said, "The college is de t ermined 
to continue to prepare the men and women who come here to live a fuller and finer 
life with all that means whether on the farm, in industry, or in professions." 

We have gone to tome length to print a revolutionary doctrine of education with 
which we are in complete accord, not only because we feel Bate* men and women 
should have acccaa to SUck a commanding point of view, but mainly because it is 
mystifying that a college and it- new president are so abreast of the times that the) 
permit this farsighted speech to be delivered. 

II in year- to come, college men and the youth of the country can save our society, 

it will not be by those student* who have cloistered themselves, but by young people 
who ha\e faced the alternative* ol socialism, communism and altered capitalism 

before the need for them arrived. We are in a state of national experimentation now 

we must experiment. Social change- have been tabooed as discussion so 

now we have no pre-COnceivcd ilea- 0< how to act. but must resort to a hit or 

bus* method. 1 

The above editorial i- reprinted from the editorial column- of the Mate- Student, 
undergraduate publication of Bate- College in Mail. . While the writer of this article 
may not have interpreted Alvan Ryan'* speech nor President Baker'- address aa we, 

who are in I lose contact with what ha- taken place and is t. iking pin e on our campus, 
might have interpreted it. the editorial i- significant. The significance is three-fold; 
fir-' that the men and women in our colleges and universities are groping, though 
blindly, for some w t. out of the moras* in which education, ethics, the political, 
.!. and the individual life ha- been. The realization that man doe- not live l>\ 
bread - ken b) an; roupol men and women. 

The second significant fact ol thi- editorial is that America- college men and 

en will now perhaps see that movementi • a ir, movements against tne 

corruption of our political and social life tan be successful only here we quote from 

Alvan R I ly "if there it ion in the individual human soul." The 

third significant that perhaps our American youth will begin a renaissai 

«, in ethics, in the po social and individual life, a renaissance that will 

eru ] i n t| 1 won, an of "the fuller and finer life." 

For humane reasons the scheduled pig- 
scrap between the frosh and the sophs 
was called off at the Connecticut State 
game last Saturday. Some one suggested 
that Lou Bush be greased up, and then 
have the frosh and the sophs TRY to 
catch Lou. The way Lou, in ordinary 
football regalia, races through the enemy 
defense, we think that to put a little 
grease on Lou would turn a football 
game into a track meet. 

We asked a senior the other night if he 
had been down to Phi Zeta house recently. 
We received this answer, much to our 
puzzlement: "No! The last time I went 
down then- was to have my white shoes 
cleaned!" Now, what did he mean? 

We went scouting in Springfield for 
show- last week and returned with the 
following choice tidbits, used to advertise 
pictures on a double-feature program.

All the New England slates are repre- 
sented in the freshman class again this 
year, as well as students from New York, 
Ohio, and North Dakota. Former stu- 
dents from three colleges are included in 
the group, namely, Harvard, M.I.T., and 
Ohio State. Among the preparatory 
schools from which these -men have come 
are Choate, Deerfield, and Mt. Hernion.

"There are girls at the State College 
now, complicating life at what was for 
nearly 00 years a 'man's college'." 

Oh, yeah! 

Professor Rand, in his new book, gives 
away a secret about Ray Stannard Baker, 
the author, and brother of President 
Baker. Two of the younger trustees, 
dissatisfied with the uninspiring list of 
proapecte for president of Massachusetts 
State, asked Kay Stannard Baker to 
make suggestions for a new president. 
First the Amherst author talked of his 
books, his life, and then he remarked: 
"By the way, I have a brother who would 
make a good college president. 1 am not 
suggesting him to the State College," he 
hastened to add. 01 course he was not 
but his listeners were interested, and 
began actual communicat ion with his 
brother Hugh, the dean of the New York 
State College of Forestry. The next 
thing that Kay Stannard Baker knew 
wa- that a newspaper announced the 
election of hi- brother to the presidency 
• •I Massachusetts State College! 

At the regular assembly Thursday 
morning, President Baker extended his 
welcome to the freshmen and new stu- 
dents. He then told of his earlier ex- 
periences in the field of agriculture to- 
gether with his personal viewpoint*. He 

concluded his speech by expressing* his 
desire to become acquainted with all new 
students, and it is hoped they will take 
advantage of this OppOti unity. 

The school then heard some extremely 
interesting experience* from Robert 
Schoonmaker S'.'W, who had placement 
this last summer in the mining region of 
Kentucky, where efforts are being made 
to turn unemployed miners back to 

Although Schoonmaker worked last 
summer voluntarily and without wages, 
he told us that beginning next year he is 
to DC sent back there as a social worker, 
among the recent d evel oped farms under 
the governm ent with salary. 

Coach Ball reports that 58 men are out 
for football this year, 20 seniors and .'IS 
freshmen. Nine are last year's lettermen 
and with Louis Serritti as captain, heavier 
men, and several freshmen with consider- 
able high school exjierience, we should 
have a team this year of marked success.

The story goes that a senior offered a

the offer turned down because said

game on the schedule. 

The Hartford collegians have for this 
first game seven veterans from last year 
when they only played against Wesleyan 
and Connecticut State in informal com- 
petition. Because the s|>ort is not official 
at Trinity, transfers and freshmen are 
eligible for varsity competition. Accord

Warner, Motten, McCarvey, and Hamer 
with Child* at goal. 

State can put a more seasoned team 00

Springfield in their first meet, 2'1-'X\, and 

triumphed last week over Bates to the 

tune of 19-41 in spite of the fact that 
Lang, its sophomore star last year, is not 
out for cross-country. State has beaten 

Tufts and St. Stephen's, but will be hard 

pressed this week to continue in the 
winning column. Several of the Huskies 
who helped trim State last year will run 
tomorrow. If Northeastern sends the 
same men used against Bates, her entries 
will be Stimpson. Sudrabin, Perry, Cattley 
Robak, Lengel, and Sorrenti. Coach

This columnist says: 

Last year when we lirst saw the VXY.\ 
football schedule, we thought that Mass. 
State had too many -olt spots on its 
journey to gridiron fame. However, now 
it appears that the Taubetnen have four 
tough games ahead of them and one con- 
tent of the doubtful quality. The coining 
tussles with Rhode Island, Rensselaer, 
Amherst and Tufts, will contain plenty of 
hard, fast football, with the issue in doubt 
until the final gun is sounded. The game 
with St. Ansleiu's, to be played at Man- 
chester, N. II., has been the object of 

much discussion. It U the lust season 
that the New Hampshire eleven has 
played football as a i ollege eleven and 

has turned in some good football to date. 
Last Saturday, St. Anelera's trounced 

Brooklyn College of New York. L'i'.U.

season, 12-0 mean .untiling or doesn't 
it? Ami by the way "Beat Mas,.

over the Rensselaer Tet h i ampus! 

Lou Bush in. iv not MC much action 
Saturday as he has not reeoveied as 
quickly from his injury as was hoped. 
The Maroon and White eleven looked 
"great guns" against Connecticut State- 
last Saturday but the fact is Connecticut 
State is not Rboele bland State! The 
work of the substitutes, especially the 
BOphotnOftS, in the game last week was 
gratifying, and assures Massachusetts 
State of many capable reserves for this 

The fact that Bowdoin avenged its de- 
feat of 1032 by overwhelming Wealeyan, 

14-0 last Saturday, inake-s us more proud 
of our grid eleven, which turned back the 
fighting Polar Bears in State's lirst game 
14-0. In the last seven football games 

with Bowdoin, Massachusetts State has 

lost four, won two. and tied one. How- 
ever, in Mel Tnufae's reign at State, the 
Maroon and White mentor has a 2 1

Freeh from victories ovet a strong

Connecticut State football team, the 

Maroon and White gridiron wave swings 
down to Kingston, R. I. tomorrow, to 
op|x>se a highly-touted Rhode Island 
State griel team. The Rhode Island 
e-le veil is a newcomer to Massachusetts 
State's gridiron schedule and has Ik-cm 
making strenuous efforts preparing for 
the Massachusetts tussle, highly opti- 
mistic of being tin- lust eleven to defeat 
tin- Taubemen. However, Captain Bush 
and his cohorts have- been chilling during 
the past we-ek on some new plays with 

winch the Taubemen hope to surprise the 
Rhode Island team. Massachusetts State 
is tin- favorite to win tomorrow'* contest, 

but Rhode Island State- is expected to 

offer still opposition to the Maroon and 

White o ffens e, 

Rhode Island opened the 1283 season 
by defeating Brooklyn College at King 

■ton, ISM). <)n tin- next Saturday, the 

sturdy Rhode Island eleven join neyed to 

< hoiio, Maine and pinned ■ surprising 

fit! defeat on the Maine eleven. Maine, 
an unusually strong team this season, as 
evid en ced by its holding Yale 14 *i, had 
anticipated an e-.isy victory, but the Rhode 
Island eleven outplayed the Maine team 

in all departments, In tin- closing period, 
Maiitenuto of Watertown, Mass., the 
speedy Ram left halfback, i nte rce p ted a 

Maine pass on his goal line and raced tin- 
length of the held for the only score. 

Rhode Islanel met its first defeat of 
the s eas o n when it was overpiwered bv a 
strong Brown eleven in Providence, 264). 
Ill this contest the powei pi, ins and t he 
passang attack of the Rams was sadly 
missing and the Brown bac ks ran rough- 
shod over the Rhode Inland forward wall. 
Maiitenuto, however, turned in some 
excellent passing for the Ranis eleven. 

The Rhode Island Stale' ele-ven gained 
its third victory ol the season last Salur 
clay by trouncing Arnold College, l.'f ti. 
The Rams scored in the lirst |M-rioc| on 
Fisher's t hree-y ard plunge through center 

and early in the third quarter arisen co 
captain ModUasewski in te rce p ted aa Ar- 
nold pass .iikI outsprinted the Arnold 

eleven for a touchdown. 

Though it opened the season with an 
untried line and an une xper ienced i>.n k 
field, Rhode Island State has played 

brilliant football this fall and will be a

With Captain Lou Bush and most of

bench, the Massachusetts State grid 

aggregation romped to an o v erw h e l ming 

victory over the Connecticut State pig 
skin toters, 40 7, on Alumni field last 
Saturday afternoon as a feature of the 

Dad's Das program. Although numerous

again made good on the place-kick. 

In the middle of the second period, 
Sturlevant, State center, intercepted a

The article entitled Trees to Live With 

by Professor Frank Waugh, head of the 
department ol landscape architecture, is 

published in the November issue of the 
Country Gentleman. The article pub- 
lished with photographs is a discussion of 

various trees iii the different localities ot 

the nation. In his opening paragraph 
Professor Waugh writes: "What is a 
home Without a tree.'' Somewhat deso- 
late to be sure It was a good old English 
idiom that spoke of a house .is the root 
tier; perhaps it points back to a time 
when we all lived under the trees, even 
if not up in the branches. Ami the Bible 
describes a happy home as a place where 
a man dwells under his own vine and tig 

tree. Evidently the idea runs deep." 

"Autumn colors should be mentioned," 
the professor continues. "They are so 
gorgeous in certain parts of our native 
land that special plantings may be made 
in their favor. The Japanese plant thou- 
sands ol their native maples for autumn 
effects, but our maples are quite as bril- 
liant as theirs. . . It always seems to me 
that the people who own all those cozy 
little homes which make up all the 
villages up and down the country ought 
to take a more |>ersonal interest in their 
home trees."

(Continued from Page 1) 
The census ind mates that in the last 
decade there has been a noticeable exodus 
of large industrial plants from the large 
cities into the small towns and rural com- 
munities. Dr. Ragman believes that if 
this movement persists a much greater 
number of people than at present will be 
able to engagl I in industry, and at the 
same time cam on small scale agricul- 
tural activities. 

With the present over-production in 
almost all branches of agriculture, this 
scheme is more in line with the present 

economic situation than the settlement ol 
people solely for the purpose of farming. 
Dr. Rozman states that it would be un- 
easonable to add new producing units to 
the great areas of agricultural production 
already in existence. ^ 

Dr. Rozman, in summing up th^sub- 
ject of part time farming, says: "The 
settlement of the unemployed in part 
time farming is encouraging as this move 
ment meets with general approval both 
from the standpoint of economic stability, 
and from the Standpoint of the social ad- 
vantage-! which may accrue from the 

decentralization of population, ami the 

creation of better living conditions lor out 

laboring people. It is expected tha t_tjjfj 

development <>t pat 

a competitive factor in agriculture in as 
much as most of these- producers will 
supplv ottlv the immediate- needs of their 
families and will not thrust additional 
farm produce upon our present glutted 
agricultural market .

unique among college histories lor its 
dramatic quality. Frank Prentice Rand, 
head of the college department of English 
and literature, has felt the adventure 
that has marked this college's story. He 
pictures its opening day, in the Autumn 
of LSI 17. 

" 4 I don't know,' says President Clark, 
'of a single man that is coming today, 
but I believe the heart of the old Bay 
State will beat true to the opportunity 
presented to it.' 

"Sure enough, there are some boys. 
They are a motley lot to look at. Some 
are in broadcloth and some are in home- 
spun. Their belongings are equally ill- 
assorted; trunks, bags, boxes, here a 
bedtick; younder a box ol apples. 

"'Over ol),' Clark whispers. In his 
picket are examination papers. The sub 
jeets ,ue elemetary the three R's, with 

a little geography and the like. 

"Clark is visiting with his students. 
Some of them he finds that he knows; 
of some their parents. One of them had 
planned to enter Amherst, but he heard 
Clark's lecture on salt and here he is. . . 
He leads the boys into an unseasoned 
classroom and sets them to work." 

Levi Stockbridge, the Hadley farmer 
among the lit st professors, was the 
pioneer in "practical agriculture-." He 
was as uncollegiate- a zealot for knowledge- 
as ever taught in a college. Rand gives a 
glimpse of him in high boots, inspiring 
his classes with the value of knowledge 
He was the fust fellow in this part of the 

develop chemical rertilizei 

ne of his first students 
founded a fortune on the Stockbridge 
formulas. I lis ideas of education wen 
different from the education that had 
be-e-n enjoyed by his three classical usso 
c Mates from Amherst. 

In his journal, he revealed the differ- 

"Worked piling up manure in the yard. 
Have finished reading Homer's Iliad. It 
seems to me that if the time that is spent 
in a collegiate course in studying this and 
works of a like character was occupied in 
gaining knowledge that would l>e of 
practical use in life, it would be much 
better spent." 

President Baker, in his inaugural, 
summed up the new deal at the college: 
"The educational effort that we make- 
wit h students shall have culture as its 
foundation, with vocation as a super- 
structure." That is a long way from the- 
conviction of Levi Stockbridge that the 
Iliad was a waste of time. The traditions, 
the equipment, and the atmosphere at 
the State College, though, will continue- 
tej emphasize the field of natural re 
sources the biological and physical sci- 
ences, horticulture and land economics 
as the natural province of this eountrv

The InltrColltgiaU Daily NfW has been in existence for tWO weeks; it has been 
distributed to the Students Of the tour Colleges, and it is now seeking financial support. 

This fom-college publication is sufficiently strong to l>e subjected to a (lose scrutiny 
to ascertain whether or not it is successfully lultilling the purpose for which it was 

founded and (or which it continues to exist. The purpose of the / ntSTCOllegiaU Daily 
OtVU .i- we have interpreted the intention ol the publishers is t Inet -fold: first, to 
improve the relations among the student groups of four neighboring colleges, Mount 
ll.ihokc, Smith, Amherst and Massachusetts State; second, to pu >li-h uncensored comment following "a fearless editorial policy to show us the truth"; and 

third, to enable deserving students to defray a pan <>i their college expenses. If the 
above interpretation i-. correct, we believe that the Inter collegiate Daily News is not 
fulfilling this purpose, thai this piper has failed to achieve its stated p irpose because 

that purpose is indefinite and vague and because the methods employed to attain 

the aim are equally indefinite and vague. 

I'll. it phase of the purpose ol the four college publication which is "to make the 
relations among the students of the four colleges more favorable" is vague and in- 
definite. The editors desire to improve the relations among the student-, of the 

valley institutions, but they give no reasons for thus improving these undesignated 
and unknown relations. We question whether these vague relations, presumably 
social, should be improved, and we question this because there are no greater reasons 
given bv the editors for the improvement of the social or intellectual contacts among 
the colleges. If the publishers and editors of the Intercollegiate Daily Neva had 
predetermined that the purpose ol the publication was the improve nent <>f the s octal 
and intellectual relations for the far sighted and constructive end of improving the 
scholarship in these schools or for the elimination of much that issupsi icial in these 
institutions we say it this had been the purpose >i <■-. tblish nen , the p iper might 
have succeeded. However, because the purpose of continuing the pi. it i-. so in 
definite and vague, it follows that the paper cannot lulldl a purpose which is not 

definitely known. For the reason the) possessed no concrete aim in founding the 

paper and they have no definite idea tor its continuance, t lie editors nave HO definite ,,n 

method <>i attaining this indefinite purpose. For example to improve the relations 

among the colleges, news stories and personal items of events and people in the differ- *- college pr.ifessor is just another

editorial policy aims at nothing bat a reckless kind of undisciplined truth set forth

Further than this, winters are long and 
cold in Labrador, with long nights, and 
the older people are often uneducated 
though thanks to the Crenfell Mission 
the younger generations are l>eing given 
a fair education. This has led to a con- 
dition, both social and economic, which 

calls for aid and it is to this work that 
Sir Wilfred Grenfell is devoting his life. 
"Agriculture is a vital part of the pro- 
gram instituted to as.isi these people," 
added Professor Sears, "for if we can 

teach then to raise vegetables, their 

winter fool ssippb will be assured, .wA 
many iiseases from which they suffer, 
such as scurvy and beri-beri, would lie 
prevented. It is in the capacity of agri- 
cultural advisor to Sir Wilfred Grenfell 
that Prof. Sears has spent the last .ix 
su miners in Labrador. 

Garden contests have furnished one of 
the chief means of interesting the people 
of Labrador in agriculture, added Prof. 
Sears. Prizes, such as vegetable seed., 
garden implements or occasionally a 
small cash prize, have served as the in- 
centive, our own Junior Extension offer- 
ing a sweepstakes prize of $").()() for the 
best garden in the whole coast, and by 
this means, distinct progress has been 
made. Competition has been very keen 
and considerable rivalry lietween con- 
testants has served to interest more and 
more people each year. 

At the start, it was doubtful as to just 
what could be raised in this climate and 
considerable experimentation was neces- 
sary, went on Professor Sears. One 
factor in our favor was the long days 
during the summer season, there being he didn't get in till February."

combination of an outstanding athlete 
and a Phi Kappa l'hi student. 


Remember! The last time Massachu- 
setts State played football at Worcester 
Tech was in 1031, when the Engineers 

prcentci I a very strong defense which 
completely bottled up Lou bush and his 
cohorts, the I'aul.emen finally winning as 
a result ol Captain Cliff Foskett's long 
field goal late ill tin' contest. However, 
we think that the Maioon and White

Worcester Tech has scored 13 points

spirit prevailing OO the campus today: 
"The only thing that will heat State is 
over-confidence." And we were up at

owner moaned that he was offering 10-0 
odds on State and could not get any 
takers! But anything can happen in a

There are in the United States some fifteen hundred collegiate publications. Of 
this number approximately four hundred publish weekly or daily editorials on sub- 
jects which range from the trials of the Soviet Union to the student troubles on the 
campus of Columbia University. Each week a million words laden with the thought 
and ideas of undergraduate and graduate editors are sent into the world for the 
purpose of influencing the opinions of men and women. Many of these words, much 
of this editorial comment is trivial as so much of American life ks trivial, and lends 
a greater disturbance to the already turbulent streams of American collegiate thought. 
The editorials, concerned with many and numerous ideas, some significant, others 
irrelevant, nearly all ambiguous, confused, and lacking in purpose contribute to the 
increasing mental strain of which Dr. Cutten spoke at the Scholarship Assembly. 
We shall note why these editorials impart to American collegiate thought much that 
is not clear nor comprehensible, and we shall suggest a means whereby these under- 
graduate and graduate articles may be clarified and thus helped to clarify the streams 
of American thought. 

The majority of college editors write of things irrelevant and unessential. They 
write of trivialities and petty ideas such as the hour the campus bell should ring to 
celebrate the football victory or the number of people which should be elected to 
the editorial board of the freshmen handbook, or again, whether or not a tree should 
be planted before the President's house. One fault then of these numerous editorials 
is their concern with the insignificant and unimportant. There are other editors who 
write of things not petty and insignificant but of great importance and meaning but 
unfortunately about which they know little or nothing. They use long words hiding 
behind a pedantic or gracious style a complete lack of thought and a knowledge of 
the facts about the problems they discuss. As examples of this type of editorials we 
present the following editorial captions, "Disarmament and Pacifism," "The Nature 
of the Ideal Government," or again "Education, its Purpose and Function." The 
editorials on such subjects are not petty but invariably they are written by editors 
who know very little or nothing fundamental about the issues back of these great 
problems. Another fault then of this mass of editorial comment is its untrustwortbi- 
ness because it is written by men and women who are not sure of their facts nor of 

their subject. 

A third fault of the undergraduate newspaper articles is the manner of prese ta- 
tion. Invariably these editorials do not have a concrete, definite idea; or in other 
words, "there is not point" to these comments. This lack of crystallized thought is 
the result of hazy ideas, indefinite and vague notions on the subject under consider- 
ation. Then a complete lack of purpose, or editorial policy dulls the effectiveness of 
these artides. In presenting their ideas or opinions, undeveloped though these idea- 
may be, editorial writers disregard almost completely the principles of English prose 
composition. The manner of presentation is at fault b e ca me of the lack of concrete- 
ness in thought, lack of purpose, and non-conformity to the rules of English compo- 
sition. These faults or weaknesses by their very nature make these opinions, com- 
ments, and suggestions confusing and obscure, contributing in that way to the muddle 
of American collegiate thought. 

What shall we do to matu this muddy opinion, which is. partly al least, the re- 
sult of sketchy, disconnected, and inexact editorials, clear? We cannot influence 
other sources which contribute to the obscurity and unintdligibility of American 
thought, but we can hope to direct the ideas of numerous editors into a constructive. 
crystal clear stream of thought and ideas. If American undergraduate and graduate 
college writers would write colely on the things they know, of the things they are 
and can be MMired about, they should be allowed to publish, and in consequence 
there will DC fewer false opinions, fewer false ideas to augment the vagueness of 
ideal in our institutions of learning. If these same writers can judge what subjects, 
what ideas, what occurrences are worthy of comment, they should publish their 
Inliefs and there will be K'ss of the trivial and insignificant. College editors should 
write sjlely of ideas which are vital and of ideas the facts about which they know. 
Then, when these authors have decided that a subject deserves consideration, they 
should phrase that subject in a language which is not obscure, which does not hitle 
the thought, and they should speak pointedly for a definite purpose in a manner 
conformable to the rules of Knglish prose. 

To make effective some of the million words sent into the world by the hundreds 
of collegiate publications, and to make the numerous editorials constructive, the 
editors of our undergraduate and graduate weeklies, dailies, and monthlies must 
write of essential things, altout which they are competent to editorialize, they must 
present these ideas in a definite point for a concrete purpose and in a way which 
follows the regulations of the best masters of English composition. 

No! It didn't happen at State! A 
college senior, finding himself unable to 
pass an exam, pinned a $5.00 bill on the 
blue book and wrote: "Let your con- 
science be your guide." He passed: 

The Stockbridge football s«piad, under 
the direction of Coach l.orin Ball, de- 
cisively whipped the Vermont Academv 
team on October 2K by a score of 30-0. 
The game was marked by some hard fast 
playing on the part of Rum* 11 Wood, who 
broke away time and again to tally IS 
points by long runs. 

The Stockbridge men will face one of 
the hardest teams on its schedule next 
Friday, Nov. 3, when they oppose the 
Springfield freshmen at Springfield. If 
they furnish the same brand of ball they 
produced against Vermont, a good battle 
with high hopes of victory can be antici- 

Stockbridge will play its next home 
game on November 11, against the 
National Farm School team, and a larger 
attendance should be had than that of 
last Saturday. Stockbridge students, we 
have a good football team this year and 
they deserve your support, therefore, 
why not come out and give them a cheer. 

M.\ Morgan, singing director of the 
Stockbridge School, reports a large and 
enthusiastic attendance at the second 
meeting of the Stockbridge Glee Club 
held on October 25 in the Memorial 
building. These meetings are to be a

joined so far, and are interested will

I heard the sound of music, the scuff ofj

He was always late for class. 

He once cut the hour three times in a row. 

He was always borrowing someone elses

He never brought his book. 
He could never rememlier his notes. 
He didn't have to. 
He was the professor.

Coach Boynton was being criticize'! 
for his drawing of the plan of a soccer;

pecially crooked line, "This is a diagrati

We were walking home from work at 
the cafeteri'a one night last week, when 
we noticed two Stockbridge co-eds acting 
strangely on the sidewalk in front of 
North College. As we drew nearer we 
recognized two sorority pledges; one, 
bouncing contentedly a rubber ball in 
every square on the pavement while the 
other was measuring the length of the 
walk with a hot-dog!

We are very proud of our football 
team and its record but we have great 
respect for the gridiron eleven of Tulsa 
University, known as the team that did 
what Notre Dame co.ild not do beat 
Kansas University. Tulsa has a line 
lighter than the average high school 
forward wall of juniors and seniors. The 
center weighs only 105, two guards are 
155-pounden, two tackles scale 175, one 
end weighs 137, and the other, the 
heaviest in the line, 180 pounds. 


Limitation, by legislative measures, of the number of foreign students in Holland 
is being urged by a group of members of the Second Chamber on the grounds that, 
Dutch students, in the pursuit of their studies, are being hindered by the large num- 
ber of foreigners. The Minister of Public Instruction, sponsor of ihe measure, has 
affirmed that such a law, if promulgated, would be applied only in the case of extreme 
necessity. (NSFA) 

During the forty years from 1K»M) (when the Bureau of Census considered that

rose from 68,256 to <»7 1.5X4. The increase in university registration in 19.'50, first

K.O. chapter of the 4-H Club on campus

paid a visit to campus last week on his

summer touring the states ending in a

Jack Turner, S*3t, known as the most 
popular Stockbridge student last year, 
returned to visit his many friends among 
the faculty and students last week-end.

Many and varied plans are being

A spanking good time was had last

Down the mountain side. 

The air, electric with autumn, 

Sniffs of pine 


And my heart remembers

Haunts me yet —

Gumbos Outplayed by Capt. Cowing 

And Mates in Fast Came 
k> _ 

r, 'With a zip that was lacking in the 
rinity game, the Maroon booters swept 


over Tufts to chalk up a 4-1 victory at 

"Med ford last Saturday. Prospects are 

iViuch brighter now for wins from Am- 

fierst today and from Dartmouth Satur- 
day, than a week ago when the Trinity 
Vbmbine easily defeated a listless State 

'"' Displaying a better game than at any 
'other time this season, the State players 
were on the offensive from the start . The 
f umbos, however, had a lighting team 
'that would not give up; and several 
times during the first period they threat- 
ened the Maroon goal. State's initial 
'tally did not come until the second frame 
'When Jackson scored on a penalty kick. 
Shortly after he soared again on a pass 
'from Kozlowski. State'* defense was 
steady and the Tufts forwards were for 

'the most part uns uc cess f ul in their at- 
tempts to break through for a goal. Clopp 
'riiade their single point in the third 

period. The Maroon offense accounted 

for State's other two tallies in the last 

Quarter, one of them being made by Bill 

Kozlowski and the other by a peas from 

him to Boh Jackson who booted it t hrough 

The Maroon victory was marred by 
Injuries received by two of the State 
'jflayers in the fast game. Debbie, goalie, 
"((as kicked in the arm, resulting in a 
"cracked bone in his wrist, an injury that 
will keep him out of the game fjr the 
'fest of the year. Jim Mackiinmie, veteran 
^ing, was kicked in the nose, but will 
'probably play in the Amherst game. 

Hopes are high for a victory over the 
Lord Jeffs who were defeated 4-0 by 
Tufts on the Sabrinas' field. 
" All of the Maroon men performed well, 
the outstanding ones, if any, being 
'Jackson and Kozlowski on the offense and 
"Norris and Cowing on the defense. The 
stellar performers for the Jumbos were 
'Captain Ganger at right halfback and 
'kavanaugh, their goalie, who mark 
several spectacular stops. 



Proctor Finished in Second Place as 
State Loses by One Point 

Losing by (MM point, 27-38, the State 
harriers met their first defeat of the 

season si the hands of the Worcester 
Tech runners last Saturday on the 

Engineers' course. Walt Stepat was 
again the individual winner, running the 
hilly five-mile course ill L'7:4.">. 

Due to misdirections, all the State 
runners tried to enter the football field 
through the wrong gate and so lost 
ground to their opponents, The error 
was not fatal to Stepat, or Proctor who 
finished second, or to Hubbard, who 
came in sixth; but Bishop, the next 
State runner, not only lost the lead that 

he had over Bueil, the Tech captain, but 

had to yield eighth place to him in the 
final sprint. Dunker and Caird came in 
next In t ie for tent h |>osit ion. 

Ill luck followed the State runners. 
Captain Caird, who usually finishes right 
behind Stepat, was a victim of cramps 
and so were Dunker and Bishop. The 
long hilly course over concrete and 
macadam roads wore out the Maroon 
harriers, accustomed to the dirt paths ol 
Amherst. However not all the misfortune 
was on State's side. Buell, the Tech 
captain, usually a member of the first 
group to finish, soon tired after setting a 
fast pace at the start and was only able 
to come in eighth.

Outstanding Amherst Center 

A contrast between the modern, highb 

technical brand of football which is 
played with a complex system <>i signals, 

rules and formations, and the good old 
rough and bang Style of game plav eel back 
in the lids, was drawn in a recent inter 
view with Colonel Charles Romeyn, head 
of the department ol inilitarv science and 

tactics, who played the game when fool 

ball was a tough battle ol brawn and 


Colonel Romeyn began playing foot- 
ball forty-one vcais ago this fall, as center 
on his class team in the preparatory de 
partiiiein ol DePauu University. During 

his freshman year at Tiilanc University, 
fie played tackle, end and fullback on 
the varsity team, for there was no three 
year rule at that time. Alter one year 

there, he went to Fori McPherson, Ga., 
to prepare for West Point entrance 
examinations, where he played fullback 

on a post team organized bv (.< 

Leonard Wood, composed ot officers, 

enlisted men and members ol officers' 
families. Colonel Konieyn says ol his 
e\|H'iienccs, "While there 1 subst it lltecl 
lot a guard on the < ■coigia Tech team m I 
game- against the Savannah Athletic 
Club. I weighed 170 pounds and m\ 
opponent was a 21(1 pound member ol 
the Savannah police lore.-!" Colon I 
Romeyn then went to WeM Point where 

cadets with previous football experience 
were scarce, and he became a member <>f 

the varsity team playing at halfback and 


Cadets were affrays in excellent condi- 
tion, for smoking and drinking were not 
allowed at any time. All football men 

were required to run a mile jog at 6 

o'clock every morning; this mile being 
sometimes taken in short sprints. Daily 
practice consisted of two sessions, :{(» 
minutes in the afternoon and 30 minutes 
signal practise alter SUppeT. The teams 
had to be tough, for eleven men started 
the game and they were expected to 
finish. The earlier games were of .U) or 
:if» minute halves and later these were 
inc Teased to 4<> and 40 minute halves. 

The field was 110 yards in length and 
the kic koll from the center of » 1 1 « - field 
often went over the goal line. The kick 
was always taken, a safely being called it 
the ball was downed behind the goal, 
Colonel Romeyn is of the opinion that 
the punting and place kicking of those 
times was of a Utter calibre than tha. ol 
today. The pla\ started with a "living 
wedge," the team being formed in a V 
on the forty-yard line with the ball 
carrier inside the V. At the whistle the 
formation ran forward, the center men of 
defense breaking the Y by diving at the 
knees of the front men in the V. "< ieneral 
Wood used to make a high dive over the 
front of the Y usually landing on the 
neck of the ball carrier!" related Colonel 


Main plays through tin- line were made 
with the backs in a Y, the ball carrier in 

front wkh everybody in the rear sinning. 

It was woe to the runner if there- was no 
hole in the line, tor he usually dove 

long with his body i" a horizontal position 

ami his head down. The quarterback had 

to nw.-ivc the ball from I he center .in- 1 

could not run with it; forward passes 
also were illegal. There wen- three downs 
and five yards to gain in contrast with 
the present four and ten to go. The 
punters learned to kick with only one 

step fro. n S yards back of the line. 

The uniforms consisted of canvas 
jackets over the regular jerseys, there 

being no protection on the upper half of 
the body. Later, however, sleev^lesa 
jackets were used wkh small woolen pads 
on the shoulders and elbows. At first, 

long hair took the place of head guard,. 

the earliest head guards being made oj 

hard leather. The colonel remarked,

,nen last Friday evening at the College 

Hall at Amber* College, Ted Shawn and 

his group of men dancers gave a perform- 
Mice «.f interpretive dancing which would 
be difficult to equal » any quarter. In- 
deed, k would be a tank to imagine a more 
splendid presentation. The perfect BlUS- 
cular control at exhibited by the group oi 
young men wa» enough incentive to make 

MM want to exercise, die., and eat thing! 

that are good for him. 

The first number is thrilling, danced to 

the vigorous music of the American com- 

poeer Mscdowell'i Polonaise. But, the 
dance had almost as old Roman or old 
Grecian atmosphere. Part (b) of the 
next number was particularly interesting, 

a Bach Invention. In this two part In 
vention, the right hand starts oM Brsl 
with a melody, two boye dance u perfect 

rhythm, taking a step tor each and every 
note, he it fast or slow. About two 
measures after the right hand begin*, the 
left hand starts its melodv, and two u.ou- 

boys start, .lancing in perfect rhythm to 
the left hand for the entire number. 
The effect is an intricate pattern of per- 
fect rhythm and timing. The fourth 

•umber to the delightful musk o( Brahmi 

Rhapsody was just great, and a tilting 
finish to the music numbers. 

The second part was a new number by 
Shawn, John 0TSWN S*S the Glory, and 
the theme is rather well described in the 
program. It is a number, extreme!) in- 
tense, tad perhaps should be ieea more 

than once to Ik- fully enjoyed. The mus.c 
for this was written entirely b) Jem 
Meeker, the young pianist, and it is 
rather interesting to note near the end, 

how cleverly the melody of John Brmnt

and win some money back. They do 
but the loser loses again and has no 
monev to pay his debt. The other two 
then decide to take it out of his bide, and 
try to catch him. He successfully eludes 
them for a time, dodging around and under 
them. Suddenly he espies some American 
tourists coming, and tries to tell his 
companions, but they don't believe htm, 
thinking that he is trying to divert their 
attention from the business at hand.

Lying with sightless eyes in his home 
on Amity Street, C.eorge Farley, State 
leader of 4-11 Club work, discussed with 
., Coltsfion reporter his enthusiasm for 
his work and the realization of his dream 
.it a dub house here on campus for his 

l II boys and girl*. In spite of the Buffer- 
ing which operations on his eyes has 

caused him, "Uncle George" is s.ill busv 

dictating letters about 4-11 work even 
from his bed in the hospital. 

'How did I happen to enter this work?" 
said Mr. Farley, relating the question 
asked by the reporter. "It is rather an 
interesting story. One day when 1 was 
standing on the curb in Brockton where 
I was superintendent of schools, a man 
came up to me and offered me $25 to 
start a Home and School Garden Club. 
Here I was a graduate of Dartmouth 
College with absolutely no training in 
gardening, but after anally convincing 
the district superintendents that it was 
,, good idea, I visited all the gardens 

which were- started that year and divided 
the money in prizes to encourage the 
youngsters. That next spring a business 
man was appealed to for more funds and 
the result was &SIH) which was used to 
encourage more than a thousand gardens 
in the city and outskirts." 

As more mone\ was found and more 
boyi and gi-ls interested, the enrollment 
in garden work finally reached three 
thousand. Because of his success in this 
work at Brockton, Mr. Farley was offered 
the position of State leader with head- 
quarters at this College. 
"" One of the most interesting periods in 
his work with young people occurred just 
before the war when the cold pack method 
of canning had its first demonstration in

most popular speakers at chapel services, 
not only here, but at a great many other 
colleges in the Fast. 

Mr. Cilkey is the pastor of the First 
Congregational Church in Springfield. 
This church has not only its r.-Iigious ser- 
vices, but it also functions to serve the 
community in a variety of ways at all 
times. Mr. Cilkey devotes a large part 
of his time to the colleges of the country. 
His coming to this campus is an event to 
which those who have ever heard him

nounced his subject, but those who hear 
him will not be disappointed. Following 
the service here. Mr. Cilkey will go to 
Mt. Holyoke to deliver the chapel address. 

Examination of the records kept in the 
Alumni office of the graduates of the class 
of 1933 reveal that to date but 12 of the 
total number of 196, or 10', of the . la*) 
are unemployed, while U"> or 20, have 
Continued their studies in order to enter 
the medical, law, and clerical professions. 
A similar examination of the 1932 records 
show that 81 alumni or 254 are unem- 
ployed and 84 are continuing their 

The positions which the graduates of 
the last two classes have range from 
Federal Land Bank appraisers to icemen, 
from musicians to tree surgeons, from 
chemist to candy manufacturers. Al- 
ready the process of scattering is under- 
way, one graduate is teaching in Alabama, 
another studying in Italy. A student of 
the .lass of 1983 is in Utah, while a 
classmate is a band leader in Hollywood 
with numerous graduates in Minnesota 

New York and Georgia. 

Thirteen graduates from each class 
selected their Alma Mater as the college 
in which to continue their studies, while 
Harvard, Yale, and Tufts were chosen by 
seven men entering the medical profea 
■ion. Three men from the class of 1933 
are preparing for the ministry and one 
from the class of 1888. 

Teaching ranks highest as the present 
vocation of seven men from the last dsst. 
Of the preceeding class, many are college 
instructors and an equal number in high 
schools. So far ten of the co-eds have 
married, and five married claxemates. 
The records of the class of 1933 are not 
complete as many of the men and women 
did not reply to the questionnaire.

•Nothing appeals so much to the most 

primitive instincts of man as an appeal 
to his race, for the race is the strongest 
expression of the group instinct, and is 
bound together with the mystery which 
surrounds birth, and which gave rise 
always to theological and mythological 
speculation," said Dr. Han., Kohn, 
author, lecturer, and noted authority on 
the problems of nationalism and racial 
questions, in a recent radio address under 
the auspices of the National Student 
Federation. "Even today, theological and 
mythological speculations are clinging to 
all discussions about nice. Ancient 
philosophers overcame this primitive race 
mythology by the creation of the con- 
ception of philanthropia, the Creek word 
for low of your fellow-men or humanity, 
a word which is the origin of our word 
philanthropic, or humanitas, the Latin 
word for humanity, which meant both a 
human relation and a humane relation of 
man toward man. Christianity went a 
step further; it did not recognize the 
natural man as he was born into his race. 
be he Creek or Jew, but only the spiritual 
man reborn by Christ." 

Tracing the history of the race theory 
from the Creek and Roman empires and 
the early years of Christianity through 
the 17th and lHth centuries, Dr. Kohn 
pointed out the revival of Aristotle's 
belief in the inequality of the human races 
in the writings of the Frenchman, Count 
( iobineati , whose theories were not popular 
in France but were in Germany. 

"One of the most important elements of 
all theories of ra.e inequality is that they

conflicts do not become acute until the 
race kept in the inferior position is ani- 
mated by the tendency to change its

Not all the annual horticulture showb 
have been as lavish in extent and beauty 
as have been those of recent years. A 
few dozen roses and carnations exhibited 
in quart preserve jars and upheld by 
seven hastily improvised show benches — 
three desks and four tables, pine boards 
laid over wooden saw-horses— comprised 
the first flower show, held in Wilder Hall 
in the early spring of 1908. 

Professor E. A. White '95, founder of 
the department of floriculture at Massa- 
chusetts State College, had secured the 
tlowers as donations from wholesale 
greenhouses in order that his students 
might letter study the commercial crops 
of flower growers. The scarcity of speci- 
mens, or their lack of appropriate mount- 
ings, evidently were not considered as 
the local newspapers described the event 
as "the finest exhibition of flowers and 
plants held in the vicinity for several 

Because of the interest shown in the 
irst display of tlowers it was decided in 
l'.ili'.l to attempt a more pretentious exhi- 
tition and for that reason French Hall 
with its many rooms was utilized. Again 
the response was gratifying and the 
annual flower show had passed its second 
milestone in what has proven to be an 
increasingly beautiful journey. 

Pleased with the success of the two 
shows, Professor White decied to make 
the affair an annual function for the 
floriculture department, and from 1909 
until 191.1, Professor White arranged for 
commercial growers to exhibit their wares 
and compete with students for prizes. 
During these years to displays were held 
in the rooms of French Hall. 

In 191.1 an innovation was introduced. 
Luncheon was served at the tables to 
invited guests, and the floriculture stu- 
dents entered table bouquets in compe- 
tition with each other. As Professor 
White had just assumed the position of 
head of the floriculture department at 
Cornell University, the floriculture club 
arranged the exhibit. 

From 1913 through 1916 the club was 
very successful in presenting the annual 
display and a feature of the 191G show 
was a white lattice-work, open cube, 
interwoven with ivy, and containing two 
huge vases of mammoth chrysanthe- 
mums, surrounded by ferns. This was 
the first inkling of the grandeur that was 
to come. During the years 1917 and 1918 
there was a cessation of the club's activi- 
ties and no show was held. 

The 1919 show introduced the depart- 
ments of pomology and horticulture. A 
suggestion by Professor Frank Waugh of 
the landscape architecture department, 
was the basis for the setting of the 1920 
and 1921 shows, considered the most 
interesting yet held. An old-fashioned 
country fair with its accoutrements of 
"hot-dogs," pop-corn, pink lemonade, 
gypsy, fortune tellers, and other fakers 
was held on the lawn north of French 
Hall as a result of the suggescion. The 
floral exhibits in tents, were interspersed 
with various attractions, not "the least of 
which was the portrayal of the three 
presidential candidates J 1920, Harding.

signal caller, got the ball down to State's 
territory. Swenson made Worcester's 
lone touchdown but failed to add the 
extra point. In the final stanza, Hiller of 
Worcester Tech, kicked the ball outside 
at midfield again and State began an- 
offensive drive to the goal. Captain Lou 
bush took the ball on Tech's 20-yard line 
and faded back with a clever deceptive 
play which looked like a forward pass 
and raced around Worcester's right end 
tor State's final touchdown, Bill Frigard 
making good the place kick. 

Outstanding for Massachusetts was the 
running of Bush, Soulliere and the kick- 
ing Bill Frigard. Cantor and McNulty 
showed up well in the Worcester lineup 
with their defensive tactics and tackles.

COX, and Debs, by the department of 
vegetable gardening. Mr. Debs, the im- 
prisoned Socialist candidate, was aptly 
represented bv a de.ease.l lieel in a cage. 
Again in l'.tlil the country fair was the 
basis for the setting of the show, and again 
its SUCCesa was repeated. The 1922 show 

represented the combined efforts ol the 

depart ments of lloricult lire, forestry, land- 
scape architecture, pomology, and vege- 
table gardening, and these departments 

have continued to exhibit in each mc- 

.ceding year. 

A Japanese mounting, showing various 

types of Korean tlowers, with a rattan 
background offsetting a brilliantly lined 
Japanese lantern, was the prize exhibit of 
the 1935 show, arranged by Professor 

Clark Thayer. Entirely different van the 

feature of the following year's arrange- 
ment. An outside lloral garden ol lilies, 
tulips, and ferns with deciduous shrubs 
forming the background, attracted most 
of the spectators. 

In 11)28 a rock garden was the cynosure 
of the show. Primitive Puritan days in 
Massachusetts were recalled by an out- 
door scene portraying two wild turkeys 
roosting in the marsh, as one of the 
features of the 1099 show. French Hall 
was taxed to the utmost to accommodate 
the spectators at the 19:10 exhibit, and 
its sponsors realized that larger quarters 
were needed as the show was increasing 
in volume and in splendor with the years. 

The recent shows of 1931 and 1933, i 
held in the baseball cage of the Physical 
Education building, have been models of 
lavish floral beauty and design. Ranging 
from realistic outdoor scenes of primitive 
life to such an exhibit as the formal garden 
presented in 1931 by the department of 
landscape architecture, these two shows 
would have seemed to have reached the 
acme of artistic development.

dance of rejoicing for having his prayer 
answered. The fourth number is a solo 
dance by Barton Mumaw, the outstanding 
member of the young group. His ex- 
pression and interpretation in all the 
dances is wonderful, and he is a modest, 
refined, and delightful person to know. 
The sixth numl>er, Worker's Songs, is 
interesting. In the Vagabonds' Song, the 
Fool strolls off, saying "This is the Life 

The seventh number, "Frohsinn," has 
an interesting true story about it. Alter 
one of Mr. Shawn's premieres in Cer- 
maiiy, some of the critics there suggested 
t hat the final number on the program was 
a little loo serious, and left the audience 
too much in that frame of mind. "Have 
n't you some dance," they asked, "in a 
lighter vein that you could use as the 
final number?" Shawn thought for a 
moment, and then said he had some 
exercises that he used to train his pupils 
to develop certain dance steps and dance 
forms, which perhaps had the motive 
that they were seeking. He illustrated 
these, and the critics were immediately 
enthusiastic and said, "That's just the 
thing." Shawn laughed, and replied, 
"Well, if you think that this is alright, 
I'll dance it, but Heaven only knows what 
I'll wear for a costume." "Wear just 
what you have on," they replied. "It's 
perfect." Shawn laughed again, for he 
was wearing his black studio jersey, long 
trousers which he wore in preference to 
trunks when it was rather cool in the 
studio. "Well, if you say so, I'll do that 
too," he said, "but there's one thing that 
I absolutely refuse to do, and that is to 
put this dance on under the name of the 
music to which it is danced." The name 
of the music was "Spring, Beautiful 
Spring." Some kind soul suggested the 
name "Frohsinn." When the next per- 
formance took place, Shawn starter! this 
dance with some little trepidation, but 
the curious thing was that this one re- 
ceived the most enthusiastic and up- 
roarious applause of any that evening.

a little relaxation and play, but soon the 
master comes, and catches them wasting 
their time, and whips them back to work 

The religious dances of group four are 
good, self-explanatory and deeply moving. 
The dance of young Mumaw in this group 
is outstanding. His pagan dance, "Fet- 
ish," utterly pagan in spirit and extremely 
weird, was performed with a fine mastery 
and skill. This music was composed by 
Jess Meeker also. The surprise at the

gether of all human races by the new

a new, dynamic element which makes 
itself felt not only in the revolt all over 
Asia, but as well in similar movements 
for political and social emancipation out 
side of Hairo|>e which have reached their 
crises during the past few years in all 
Latin American republics, where even 
the long silent and suffering Indian race 
is awakening to a claim of its due posit ion 
in its own ancient lands. 

"There is a great forward movement 
on the part of all the non-white races 
which we called, only a few years ago, 
backward races, and who are tori ay 
trying hard, and sometimes, as Japan 
proves, very successfully to adopt for 
themselves the cultural and social stand- 
ards of the white race. They strive not 
only for political emancipation but for a 
social advancement of their masses to 
participate in the program of humanity 
toward a letter world. . . Liberalism be- 
lieves that man can 1m: changed and im- 
proved by education and by social in-

has to continue as he has been l>orn. 
Therefore race theories in the present 
form are not only dangerous for world 
peace and humanity at large, but as 
theories of despair bid us to accept man 
and races as they are and to give up every 
idea of their improvement. The theory 
of racial inequality will therefore not 
only precipitate us into endless race con- 
flicts, but make every human effort to 
create a new world futile!" NSFA

work and another assistant for the pig 
dub. He now has four assistants and 
twenty-five club agents. 

"I am particularly anxious that this 
work shall be developed on the basis of 
its name, 4-11. At the start, too much 
attention was given to Head and Hand 
and not enough to Heart and Health. 
We are now slowly and surely rounding 
out a program which endeavors to train 
young people in all four." 

When asked about the history of the 
Farley club house, Mr. Farley said that 
five or six years ago, the leaders of the 
summer camp on campus were all ready 
with their registration cards waiting for 
the arrival of carloads of l>«>ys and girls, 
when a real Connecticut Valley thunder 
shower arrived, turned their tent into a 
seive and soon had all the cards alloat. 
Retreating to the basement of the "M" 
building, Mr. Farley and his assistants 
vowed to acquire somehow a head- 
quarters building with a wooden roof. 
About two years l>efore the depres>,iuti 
began, the young people throughout the 
state and their friends began sending 
contributions ranging from a cent to $50. 
Each summer then the campers would 
inquire hopefully, "Where is our build- 
ing?" And each summer their leader 
would have to answer, "Still in the bank." 
"Finally, last spring I decided to put 
up as much of a building as possible and 
hope for enough money to complete it. 
Advertising over the radio that the build- 
ing was about to be started, I had an 
enthusiast if response from a former club 
girl who persuaded me to have an archi- 
tect, who was interested in the club, 
design the attractive club house which is 
located west of North College. 

"President Baker was heartily in favor 
ol allowing the club boys to build the 
bouse themselves. What matter if they 
cut the limber wrong? So much the more 
sentiment in the project! By the end of 
the summer, the building had been com- 
pleted within the stipulated sum of 
money and except for a few finishing 
touches is available for various purposes 
during the c o llege year." 

because of his hospital experiences this 
summer it was impo ss ib l e tor Mr. Farley 
to he present when the Farley Club 
House was dedicated. "But. of course, " 
he said. "I war there in spirit " 

In Conclusion, Mi. Farley extended his 
cordial invitation to college groups to use 
the Farley house. "We want them to 
use it!" he exclaimed heartily, and added 
"I hope soon to be able to stand at the 
window of the club house and see the 
Min setting over behind our hills." 



(Continued from Page 1) 
Or. and Mrs. Baker began on board ship 
after my last trip to Germany and I soon 
after painted two of their portraits now 
on exhibition in the Memorial Building." 
His experiences have proven that the 
main difficulties of a portrait painter are 
to get people to sit quietly during the 
work and to dispose of those people who 
insist on telling the artist that his work 
should be merely photographic. 

"I don't think a portrait is only to give 
a likeness" he explained, "but it should 
be a work of art. It shouldn't be necessary 
to know the man; the portrait should 
have such interesting qualities that they 
alone attract one to it." 

"A landscape should not make one ask, 
'Where is it?' but 'What is it?' or 'How 
is it done?' I remember a man who 
bought two pictures of mine of Danzig 
scenes at an exhibition in Berlin. Later, 
he told me he chose them because they 
happened to be of his own house! I was 
utterly disgusted!" 

Asked to compare American and 
maa college students, he told of his ex- 
perience as one of the latter. "The 
German student, I think, studies more, as 
the teachers are more strict. I used to 
study all afternoon and night, but," he 
added with a smile, "I hear conditions 
are changed now and the German stu- 
dent, as well as being very interested in 
politics, is becoming more active in 

In commenting on Hitler's government, 
Professor Meyer told of the repo.ts his 
family sent him. The jjeople outside 
Cermany should not distruct Hitler so 
much and should be especially careful as 
newspapers on both sides are quite apt 
to exaggerate conditions. Hitler has made 
great progress toward doing away with 
struggling and starving unemployed. He 
has made it passable for the non-worker 
to receive enough to exist on. "Even 
artists in Germany, if deserving, are re- 
ceiving something fifty or sixty marks 
while many in New York are starving." 

Although Professor Meyer deals prin- 
cipally with portraits, he frequently makes 

caricatures, of which "Prohibition" is an 
example, and sketches of his companions 
for his own amusement. While on a 
cruise to Spitsbergen in 192b, he turned 
to landscape work to record the sight of 
the vast ice floes, the Antic sea, the 
northern mountains. These scenes, which 
are the first of that region in history, form 
the nucleus of the present exhibition and 
were also exhibited two years ago in 
Brooklyn Museum of Art. 

"I think these trips I made three 
were the most interesting experiences in 
my life as an We went to HI de- 
grees North latitude, and as it was July, 
the sun would set behind some mountain 
and then reappear a minute later. 

"The voyage lasted 87 days on a 

pleasure cruiser of the North German 
Lloyd line. We started from Bremen- 
hafen, sailed around the coast of England 
and after ,ing the Faroe Islands oft 
Scotland were in open water. We stopped 
at Kejkavik in belaud before going to 
Spitzgergen itself where we again ex 
plored before going home." 

There were many things to see the 

emerald green and blue sea, the arctic 

birds and whales, the immense blinks ol 
floating iee, the vast expanses of perma 
Bent glaciers, the ceremonious ritual with 
which the passengers wen- enrolled into

Action was taken ,n a recent meeting

Nov. 7, allowing any baud next year 

representing a college whose team the 
State College is playing, to i-c- admitted 
to the game without paying am ad 

mis, ion except the amusement tax. In 
case a decision regarding the status ol 
band players can be obtained fro n t he 

United States Revenue Bureau, even the 

tax will not be charged. 

This vote was taken as a result ol the 

recent "sympathy strike" of the Mi^.i 
chusetts State College band not to play 
at the Amherst game and all future ath- 
letic events, after the Connecticut State 
band had been charged adm i ss ion at a

With the increased number of violation! 

of the honor system at the College, a vital 

question again comet to the fore, the 

question of how to make freshmen and I 
those Upper ( l.issmen who have become 
delinquent in the matter of honor obey 
the rules and regulations of the code. I low 
shall we make these people, these fresh- 
men, these sophomores, juniors and 
seniors conform to the rules and regula- 
tions of the Honor Council? 

COttld we answer this question we 
might solve the riddle of the universe. 
One religion possessed authority and the 
power to frighten men into a conformity 
with the moral code. Once the home 
inculcated into children the power to 
follow such a code. Once public opinion 
condemned the thief and the dishonorable 

man or woman. Today religious ideas 
and ideals are old fashioned; science has 

d e stroye d them and of a consequence the 
fear of the lost of immortality and of the 
punishment after death cannot enforce 

the honor code as pari of a Christian's 

duty. The home no longer is a school in 

which children are trained in the Sturdy 

virtues. Public opinion now does not 

condemn the thief, but rather admires the 
dishonorable men of women who can 
"get away with it." Logic, apparently, 
cannot be made to support the ideals of 
honor; it cannot prove the efficacy of the 
virtue of honesty. A weak moral code has 
degenerated into a false ethical standard. 
What remains then for a standard on 
which to set the honor system? What 

remains to employ as s power to force 
obediance to the codes of honor? Ap- 
parently nothing remains outside of the 

individual and the truths which are back 
of the honor system. Whether or not the 
freshmen, the sophomores, the juniors or 
the seniors will adhere to that code or any 
Code depends on the nature of his charac- 
ter, and whether or not knowing these 
truths, they live up to them. Although 
we cannot prove these absolute truths 
back of the honor system, nor give them 
authoritatively as true, we can state these 

That, ultimately, a stupid man, no 
matter what his marks are, is still a 
Stupid man when he graduates; 

That, ultimately, he who cheats others, 
cheats himself; 

That, ultimately he who passes the 
test falsely with the aid of others will fail 
misctabK when the final test comes when 
he shall have no other aid but his own 

That, ultimately, he who cheats in 
examinations, robs himself ol the oppor- 
tunity for self-knowledge, for power, for 
force of character, and lor "the golden 
key that opes the palace of eternity." 


TIMES. . ." 

"These are momentous times," said 
President baker last week, and we have 
been told by main other speakers that 
we are living in a great period of change 
and transition, a period that will be noted 
in history, a period the results of which 
will forever affect the destiny of mankind. 
In this period of llitleristn, Past ism, 
Communism, and Controlled Capitalism, 
in this period with the threat of a greater 

war in Europe, with the finance of all 

nations weakened and strained, with grave 
disorders in our own America, in this 
period then, what is to be the college 
Student's attitude and outlook toward 
the world? What should he be doing in 
Academia? The student is naturally 
interested in these vital occurrences of 
our times; he is deeply worried about 
the great wave of nationalism that is 
sweeping across the world; he is engrossed 
in the intricacies of international tin. nice. 
In these tumultous as well as momentous 
times, should the student withdraw en- 
tirely from the confusion of the world of 
affairs? Should he occupy himself with 
day dreams of the things he will do when 
he enters this world as so many students 
do? Should he passionately adopt one 
side of any great question and argue with 
everyone? We say no. Here in the calm 
of Acidemia, the student should strength- 
en his intellei 1 to find the true ways to a 
peaceful, stable, happy world; he should 

be training his will to follow those ways 
against the sellish petty Interests of other 
men; and he should lie developing his 
wisdom to know when, how, and why to 
follow these ways and the means of 
reaching his aims. 

Emotionalism anil the passions are 
rampant in the world today. Hitler, a 
master of emotional oratory, has appealed 
to the passions of a great people and 
attained power. Others have preceded 
and followed him. Passion canuo* be a 
guide to a lasting government, to any 
political or social system. The intellect 
must l>e used to establish and maintain 
any permanent political, social, or eco- 
nomic order. There is need, then, as all 
admit, for the intellectual master of men, 
moods, and ideas; a crying need for great 
intellects. So in Academia, away from 
the "tumult of time disconsolate" the 
student should develop his intellect. He 
should study world movements, their 
origins, their results; he should become a 
master of the subtle and of the apparent 
tones that mould the destinies of men 
and nations that he might in years to come 
control these forces. The student should 
think real thoughts, and not think that 
he thinks real thoughts. Decidedly, he 
should not simply talk of the troubles and 
lib of the world. If he would cure these 
ills, il he would cleanse the world of crime, 
if he would create an economic order 
wherein all men will be equal, he must 
work toward that ideal now by cleansing 
himself of crime, by creating a world of 
equal and just friends in college. The 
student must study to learn the principles 
on which great go v e rn ments arc construc- 
ted, on which a lasting peace is main- 
tained, the principles on which a great 
nation is built, and on which happiness is 
based. These principles are all about us 
working in our daily lives, ami the stu- 
dent who dreams of saving the world 
must tease dreaming and discover the 
principles in his own world. -So in Aca- 
demia. in these days of uncertainty, let 
the student think, iet him learn, let him 
strengthen his intellect, and to the world 
of affairs l<x)k for knowledge. 

Men are fearful of life today; they 
fear the consequences of their acts. Men 
are susceptible to the ideas and the 
l>eliefs of other men and easily persuaded 
to do anything. The will of mankind has 
thus become paralyzed. Great democra- 
cies are falling and have fallen because 
men did not possess wills sufficiently 
strong to hold them together. Here then, 
away from great acts on which the welfare 
ol millions depends, the student of our 
colleges should train his will and strength- 
en it into an iron instrument worthy to 
battle all the forces of the world. By 
willing about small things, he learn to 
will about great things. By saying "I 
will" or "I will not" in regard to his petty 
habits, some day he will be able to say 
"I will" or "I will not" and save a nation. 
By using his will, the student can curb 
the passion, clear the intellect, and live 
and labor as a man. So, in calm Academia 
our students must develop their wills so 
that they may turn the gale of world 
forces into constructive channels. 

Roosevelt, the nation will admit, knew 
what to do to stop the collapse of a people 
and he possessed the will to do it, but 
was he wise in doing what he did? We do 
not know yet whether or not he possesses 
wisdom. If he does, he will be recorded 
in the annuals of our time as a genius of 
the first order. Throughout this turbu- 
lent world, in the lives of men and na- 
tions, the age-old virtue of wisdom is 
lacking and the results of this lack are 
disastrous. In our colleges and univer- 
sities the student has an incomparable 
opportunity to develop the wisdom where- 
by he may learn the manner and the time 
to do the things his intellect tells him 
should l>e done and his will allows him to 
do. This wisdom comes partly through 
virtue, partly through thought, partly 
through acts, and partly through that 
immutable element of our serves, the soul. 
Nowhere can wisdom be developed to 
such a degree as here in Academia. 

In this world of uncertainty, in this life 
of trouble and toil, in this age of weak 
governments and sinking ideals, our

Zbe Campus Crier 


Well, the Amherst week end is over! 
Many of the frosh co-eds are walking 
around campus still marveling over the 
wonders of the lii^ house dances and the 
innumerable pleasures and joys a new- 
comer encounters at her first fraternity 

formal. We met one little co-ed, who. 
after visiting several of the houses, re- 
marked to her escort, "They certainly 
do not waslr electricity at these dailies!" 
And don't tell hut the electric light 
company reported that the voltage useage 
on Pleasant street last Saturday night 
was the lowest in a decade!

We were driving home from the Am- 
herst game last week-end when we caught 
up to the Buick sedan of a certain Eco- 
nomics prof. Our driver, a junior, as In- 
stepped on the gas and blew his horn, 
quipped: "I might as well pass him- 
he'll never pass me!" 

A professor's definition of a pro- 
fessor: A professor is a man who 
learns more and more about less and 
less, until finally he can tell you 
nothing about anything. 

The best remark of the Amherst week- 
end was heard from one of our brothers, 
who, suffering from the effects of Uncle 
Ed's beverage, introduced his lady escort 
to a guest in the following manner: 
"Meet Geranium. I call my girl Gerani- 
um because she's always potted!" 

Our prize tidbit: Some theme begin- 
nings taken from freshman English: 

1. Going to college is lots different 
from going to high school; thus the new 
freshman soon funis out when he enters 
his alma mater. For instance, in college 
you have to buy all your own books. 

'2. I was born in Massachusetts, in 
1914, and if you will excuse me about 
talking about myself, I am now giving 
my autobiography. By a strange chance 
the World War broke out the same year 
I was horn in, hut not the same month. 

3. In comparing Harold Bell Wright 
to the Bard of Avon, as William Shakes- 
peare is called, I am not even doing 
justice to the wonderful author of "The 
Shepard of the Hills." 

4. It is hartl to think of anything that 
more pe opl e are in than love. I have 
been going with the same girl for three 
years; she is a local girl in my town, and 
I certainly am in a position to write on 
a subject like love. 

."). When looking at a tree I often 
think that I never saw a poem as loving 
as it. Some poet expressed this letter 
thin I could. He said I think that I 
shall never see a poem lovely as a tree 
He also said fools wrote poems. 

Who was that fraternity man that 
was arrested in Northampton early 
Sunday for being drunk, but was 
released on the pretense that he had 
water on the brain, and he was tak- 
ing a anti-freez'-* s.duti >n? 

What kind of a new deal is this? The 
students had worked two hours in the 
Organic Chem lab preparing ethyl iodide 
and the professor announced that each 
student had made 28c worth of ethyl 
iodide! As, under the code, .'?() cents an 
hour is the minimum wage, those fourteen- 
cents-an-hour workers should do some- 
thing about it! 

We know the grade of poetry is rather 
low but what a sincere theme! 

Whether your shell hits the target or not, 
Your cost is five hundred dollars a shot. 
You think of noise and flame and power. 
.We feed you a hundred barrels of flour 
Each time you roar. Your (lame is fed 
With twenty thousand loaves of bread. 
Silence! A million hungry men 
Seek bread to fill their mouths again.

On Saturday, Nov. 11, the Stockhridge 
football squad will meet the National 
Farm School warriors on the Alumni 
Field at 2. .'50 p.m. The National Farm 
School team coming from Pennsylvania 
have not lost a football game in the last 
live years, last year Stockhridge scored 
two touchdowns against them, making a 
record of being the only team to do so in 
the last three years. 

A great battle can be anticipated as 
the Stockhridge team have been playing 
some very fine defensive football, list 
week they dropped a game to the Spring- 
field Frosh team by the narrow margin 
of 2-0. The Springfield team received 
their points due to an unfortunate fumble 
on the part of Stockhridge. Stockhridge 
was the first team this year to stop 
Springfield from scoring a touchdown. 

The team will be playing under a 
handicap next Saturday due to a shoulder 
injury received by Ed Uhlman in the 
Springfield game. Coach Ball believes 
that Fd will be in the game against 
Decrfield. Let's see if we can't give the 

team plenty of support next Saturday. 

A great game will be played, come on out

After crossing the border lines of nine 
states, speaking in the capitols of two 
states and the nation's metropolis, Presi- 
dent Baker's itinerary has this final, 
characteristic inscription, "November 20, 
back in office." 



(Continued from Page 1) 
The sentiment of the band members as 
expressed by the manager, Ralph Henry 
'34, was that "such a charge was unfair 
and not calculated to foster friendly 
intercollege relationships inasmuch as it 
has been the costom at all colleges for 
visiting bands to be admitted free and 
the Connecticut band had not expected 

to pay any admission." 

The decision to charge the visiting band 
was made as an interpretation of an 
agreement made last year between vari- 
ous New England colleges (including 
Massachusetts State and Connecticut 
State I not to issue complimentary tickets. 
A further agreement with Connecticut 
State allowed visiting students to be 
admitted at half price and this was the 
fee charged by Prof. Curry S. Hicks, head 
of the department of physical education. colleges are attempting to have 
band members classified by the U. S. 
Internal Revenue Bureau with reporters, 
officials, etc., who do not pay the amuse- 
ment tax and a decision is expected soon. 
This would allow all visiting bands en- 
tirely free admission. 

The band is still striking for an apology 

to be sent to Connecticut State College 

j by the Physical Education department, 

| although the decision by the Athletic 

Advisory Board is expected to straighten 

out the present difficulty. 


Another Reason for 
Campus Chest Drive 

In the nearby city of Holyoke lives the 
G family composed ol a father, 

mother, and six children. The father is 
a skilled painter but he has been unem- 
ployed for the past four years. The 
meager resources of the family have been 
exhausted and their situation is desper- 
ate. The eldest son has been in the 
hospital at various times during the past 
tew years. He suffers from an incurable 
disease aggravated by mulnuirii ion. This 
is another case which the members of 
the Campus Chest Drive committee hope 
to relieve.

The pack got off to a slow star! with 
the fifteen runners still bunched at t he 
end ol the second mile. Stepat tried 
several times to increase the pace, but 
each time he would lose the way on the 
tricky course and have to yield the lead 
to the Williams star, Gregory. About 
half a mile from the finish, Walt gained 
the lead again and held it while the 
runners entered the stadium, Gregory 
only a few leet behind the Maroon star. 
In the fast sprint down to the finish, the 
Purple runner pushed himself up beside 
Stepat and they broke the tape in a dead 
heat. Proctor came in a little way 
behind, followed by Dick Hubbard, 
Captain Caird, and Dunker who finished 
the count for Slate. Bishop, the sixth

iii pan through tin' popularity with 
which a similar school of biography, 
namely, the Strachey Maurois Bradford 
school oi biography, has been receive I. 
In short, in this school of history action, 
drama, human interact, ill focusing in an 
ardent and fascinating st\le, are the 
qualities most sojghf after and conse 
quently inosi e\ idem l\ stressed. 

h is b) the i scond method thai Pro 
feasor Rand't history, Yesterdays ai 
Massachusetts State dtUege, proceeds, .1 
work which he was appointed to prepare 
and which, sponsored by the Associate 
Alumni, has just come from the pros. 
In accordance with ■ ich a method Pro- 
fessor Rand, instead oi presenting the 
usual array d historical chapters in the 
usual sequence has chosen some forty- 
three significant incidents or episodes in 
the life oi the College from 1863-1933, 
Says the author in his Epilogue to the 
narrative; "An attempt has been made 
in the foregoing pages to suggest tin 
personalities, the moods, and the pro- 
grams which together make up the storj 

of this College. • • The story of this 
College is after all simply a story of men 

and women; audacious, imaginative, 

persistent in purpose, seeking a light. 
Their <la\s have been ureal in themselves, 
hut greater in promise. Their works have 
come down to us a heritage, yes, hut a 

challenge. Their story is ours." Read- 
able the volume surely is, lor these epi- 
sodes have all been selected with reference 
to their human and dramatic possibilities 

and developed with the deft and pleasing 
touch lor which the author is so well 
known. Mul the vers suc< ess ol t he 

method e> ,,s to the work a character 

something le*l than that which the re 
viewer, at least, likes to find associated 
with sound historical elTort . The delect, 
very likely, is inherent in the method 
itself, which ever hires any writer who 

uses it to concentrate upon those elements 

in the case which lend themselves besi 

to shining narration and to dramatic 
value-, and per centra t<> the neglect oi 
those othei el >ments which may !><• less 
dramatic, to he sure, but which ue quite 
,,, ess mi tal to a true understanding and a 
just appreciation of the situation. Fa 

example, in the episode concerned with 

the change ol na ne of the College this 

reviewer finds serious K ,i|is in the nana 

tive, for he is h-ft, after reading the epi 
sode, with the impression that the change 
ol name came al.out principally through 

the etlorts ol the agitating student group. 

Such an Impression is, indeed, unfortu- 
nate, lor any OOC who was a part ol the 
College when that decision was pending 

know- well that in.inv other influences more potent, though leSl colortul 
perhaps, were fully as effective as the 


in bringing about the 
Devoutly to he wmh'd." 

Again, this reviewer cannot help wonder 

log if there is not a deal more to the 
storv of the way in which President 
linker was -elected hy the Trustees to he 

the eleventh president of the College 

than the episode concerned with that 
matter in Yesterdays WOUld seem to 
imply. If, then, such omissions strike 
( ,nc in connection with recent events in 
the history of the College and in <'.nix 

similar omissions in the earlier episode- 
of the history have not, in part, invali- 
dated their claim as true and faithful 

accounts of the character and spirit of 
i hose years? 

The raising of such cpieries and the 
planting <>f such doubts, I dare sa\ , must 

seem ungracious, stthough the reviewer 

hastens to express his regret that he is 

obliged to appear in so churlish a light. 

He teai-, none the less, that these limi- 
tations are inherent in the method 
chosen, and in the nature of the problem 

they arc bound to he urged against any 

work that proceeds hy such principles. 
Moreover, he is not at all certain that a 

satisfactor) compromise between the two 

methods of historical composition by 

which the accuracy and completeness and 

trustworthiness of the first are combined 
with the interest and vivacitN and 

readability of the second b often achieved. 

Certainly, he is kcciils aware of the 

difficulties besetting the whole undertak- 
ing and knows well how fully evci\ one 
interested in the Massachusetts State 

College is indebted to Professor Rand for 

-o vivid and colorful and human a record

Annual Drive Commences Monday 
And Will Last for Two Days 

The annual Massachusetts State Col- 
lege Campus Chest Drive will begin next 
week, on Monday, Nov. 20 at 7 o'clock 
for the purpose of raising $f>00. This sum 
is to be donated to the local unemploy- 
ment committee and the American Red 

Conducting the drive in the same 
manner as last year the committee has 
arranged to have some member of the 
committee visit every student in the four- 
year and two-year schools on Monday or 
Tuesday nights between 7 and 10 o'clock. 
Last year the quota of the drive was $2(X). 
Because of the large amounts collected at 
other colleges, the committee decided to 
attempt to collect $300. more this year 
or averaging fifty cents from each student 
At colleges in the vicinity of Massachu- 
setts State College, the results of similar 
chest drives have been unusual. At 
Smith College, the Community Chest was 
organized shortly after the war and the 
average contribution is $10 per student, 
although each gives what she can afford. 
Every year the first dollar goes to the 
Red Cross. Part of the money collected 
goes to Ginling College for Women in 
China. Hampton Institute, the Pint- 
Mountain Settlement in Kentucky, the 
Student's Emergency Relief Fund, the 
Consumer's League and the Albanian 
School of Agriculture. This year, in 
addition to these, Smith is helping to 
support the Milk Fund and the People's 
Institute, both in Northampton. 

Last year Amherst College collected 
$4200 and this year $.3500, an average of 
$4.00 per person, with 95? of the student 
body contributing. Of this, $1800 goes 
to Doshisha or Amherst in Japan, $200 
to the Red Cross, $100 to the Friendly 
Relations Committee or the Fund for 
Needy Students, $600 to Grenfell, $500 
to the Unemployment Relief in Holyoke, 
$100 to the Boys' Club in Amherst, and 
$200 to the Student Y.M.C.A. of New 

Williams collects $4000, an average of 
$8.00 per person, with 80? of the student 
body contributing. Of this $2000 goes to 
the Boys' Club work in Williamstown, 
$250 to the American Red Cross, and 
$1500 to Student Aid. Only 51 of these 
contributions come from the faculty. 
Last year, the extra $1500 solicited was 
divided between the Student Aid and the

More Could Be Placed if Those Seek- 
ing Employment Would VUit the 
Bureau More Often, According to 
Professor Glatfelter. 


Through the College Placement Ser- 
vice, 150 students have found work on 
and about the campus this fall. They art- 
employed by the various college depart- 
ments and to some extent by residents of 

The Grounds Service uses the greatest 
number of men, a numl>er ranging from 
10 to 20. The 4-H Club, the Library, 
Horticulture Manufactures, and the Home 
Economics Department are also outstand- 
ing in this regard. More seniors are em- 
ployed than members of other classes, 
the policy being to favor the higher class- 
men, and freshmen are given only odd 

Approximately one-third of those who 
applied have obtained employment. "The 
number should be larger if applicants 
would visit my office more often," Mr. 
C.latfelter stated when interviewed. 
"Since calls for students reach the office 
constantly, it is most convenient, as well 
as most reasonable, to select those who 
by frequent applications show real inter- 
est in finding work. The Placement Ser- 
vice is a service which students should 
learn to use. Calls at the office ought to 
be made once a week, preferably at the 
beginning of a vacant period of time." 

It is interesting to note that the prob- 
lem of student help is handled at Har- 
vard University exactly as it is here. 
This fact was brought out at a meeting 
of the Eastern College Personnel Officer's 
Association, held Nov. 3 and 4 at Williams 
College, which Mr. Glatfelter, Miss 
Hamlin, and Mr. Grayson attended. 



Ten Land Grant Colleges in New 

England Hold Conference at 

Univ. of New Hampshire 


Salzedo-Barrere-Brltt Trio Appear in 
First Community Concert Program 

William Schell 

Chapel Speaker 

Member of Board of the Foreign 
Missions that Censored Pearl Buck 

Reverend William P. Schell, meml>er of 
the Board of Foreign Missions of the 
Presbyterian Church, will be the speaker 
at this Sunday's Chapel. Mr. Schell is a 
graduate of Williams College and a well- 
known speaker in various colleges and 
universities in the country. 

While Mr. Schell was a member of the 
Presbyterian Board of Foreign Missions 
1 tst fall, Pearl Buck, the author of "The 
Good Earth" and other novels of Chinese 
life, indicted that body. Basing her 
novels and her indictment of the Foreign 
Missionaries on her experience as a mem- 
her of the faculty of Nanking University, 
Mrs. Buck was censored for her outright 
< riticism of the Board of this church. 

Mr. Schell is a chairman of the board 
"f trustees of a Chinese University, 
known as the Yenching University in 
I 'eking. The Chapel speaker has held 
various positions in churches throughout 
the country mostly in New York. He 

ra.luated from Williams College in 1901, 

Iron the Auburn Theological Seminary, 

1 was ordained minister in 1904. 

He is the recipient of an honorary 

doctor's degree from the Montana Valley 



Departmental Honors Plan, Insti- 
gated in 1929, Has Shown 
Marked Growth 

Twenty-two students are doing depart- 
mental honors work this year in the major 
departments of the college. This numl>er 
represents an increase of 125J over the 
numl>er which engaged in honors work in 
1929 the first year of the departmental 
honors system. 

In 1929 the plan, as employed in other 
colleges of allowing able students to 
pursue original work under the direction 
of faculty advisors, was instigated by a 
faculty committee. Five years ago in 
1929 ten students did departmental work

For tha purpose of discussing various 
problems connected with leadership in 
college circles, the University of New 
Hampshire was host Nov. 10 and 1 1 to a 
conference of approximately 35 delegates 
from ten land grant colleges in New 
England. Representing Massachusetts 
State were Edmund Clow, president of 
the Senate; Raymond Royal, editor-in- 
chief of the Collegian Glenn Shaw, 
managing editor ol the Collegian and 
Fred Clark, whj was the unofficial repre- 
sentative of the Interfraternity Council. 

Each college participating was repre- 
sented by at least one delegate from each 
of their respective student councils, 
interfraternjty councils and publication-; 
and informal discussions were held by the 
delegates on the problems in each group. 
President Lewis of U.N.H. and former 
president of M.S.C, Dean Alexander of 
U.N.H., and Mr. Blood, managing editor 
of the Manchester Union, were the sjieak- 
ers at the opening general assembly. 

In his opening address to the general 
assembly, President Lewis made a strong 
plea for the establishment of a definite 
and continuous policy in college organi- 
zations. Each person should attempt to 
further the policy of his predecessor 
rather than attempt to make a new one 
of his own, he concluded. 

As managing editor of the Manchester 
Union, one of the Chicago Tribune affili- 
ates, Mr. Blood was well qualified to 
speak upon the "Opportunities for College 
Men in Journalism." Connected with 
this topic, the problem of the freedom of 
the press was discussed by Mr. Blood

History Reviewed 
On Crabtree Fund 


Etchings, drypoints, aquatints, and 
wood cuts by Professor John Helm, Jr., 
of the department of architecture of 
Kansas State College, are now on exhi- 
b ition in the Memorial Building. These 
p : ctures represent for the most part 
scenes of landscapes in and around the 
artist's home state of Kansas, and 

The etchings range from such themes 
as "Shanty Town" to "Kew Bridge" in 
London. Professor Waugh arranged this 
exhibit through Mr. Helm who is a mem-

alma mater. The etchings now on exhi-

Legacy Bequeathed College by Fam- 
ous Actress Much Less Than 

Nine years ago, newspaper rc|>orts of a 
$3,000,(MX) legacy licpieathefl the college 
by a famous actress was sufficient to 
startle the campus into discussion of the 
question, "What's to be done with all 
that?" Today, hardly any student has 
ever heard of the Crabtree Fund," for the 
inheritance amounted to much less than 
the anticipated millions, and further 
restrictions placed the benefits beyond the 
interest of many students. 

Miss Charlotte Crabtree, who made her 
stage debut when six years of age, after 
a high successful career as a leading lady 
for forty-six years under the stage name 
of Lotta, retired to enjoy and disjiose of 
her vast fortune. After her death in 1924, 
her will, which was considered the most 
unusual and humanitarian ever probated 
in Massachusetts, revealed a variety of 
philanthropic bequests totaling $2,775,000 
to form funds for the aid of deserving war 
veterans, actors, hospitals, discharged 
convicts, dumb animals and others.

The annual Campus Chest Drive will begin next Monday evening, November 20. 
at 7 o'clock. The purpose of this drive is to till the desired quota which will be do- 
nated to the Unemployed Relief Fund and the American Red Cross. During the 
campaign every student of the college will be visited and asked to give to the Chest. 
The memberi of the Committee of the Campus Chest Drive have asked us to make 
an to the students of the college. In response to that request our appeal is 


Do not contribute to the campus Chest Fund if you give because you fear the 

condemnation of your friends if you do not give. 

Do not contribute one cent if you give because your friends give. 

Do not contribute one cent if you have no desire to help the unfortunate and 


Do not contribute one cent because you feel sorry for the unemployed and des- 

Contribute to the fund if you must sacrifice some pleasure; give freely to the 
fund if you give in the spirit of "caritas"; contribute if you give to aid a friend, and 
because "Freely ye have received; freely give." 

Editorial comment from other colleges. 


The move recently liegtin in various parts of the country to investigate the re- 
lation lietween fraternities and their national organization has been joined by 
Syracuse University where a drive has been instituted by the men's senate, accord* 
ing to the Daily Orange, to curb honorary and professional organizations, "which, it 
is charged, are little better than rackets." 

A series of public hearings will lie held for the purpose of investigating the inner 
workings of all fraternities. Other moves of the senate were to begin planning for a 
uniform financial report which each fraternity must submit to the senate, passage 
of U enabling act to give the senate committee the power to conduct hearings, and 
passage of three motions whose object is to curb future growth of honorary and 
professional groups on the campus. These motions make it unpOHsbk for a new 
fraternity to be founded on the campus without the approval of the senate, or for 
one already in existence to affiliate with a national organization except upon investi- 
gation by the senate. The senate is also empowered to set the standards for ad- 
ini-Mon to meml>ership and the amount of money contributed to national organi- 

The report upon which the investigation is based discloses that of the 63 honor - 
aries on the campus 38 are affiliated with national organizations. All of these have 
submitted their excuse and budget accounts, and the following significant facts are 


"In the first place, the majority of the national headquarters are located in the 
west, and it is interesting to note that four of the groups do not know where their 
national headquarters are located. In the second place, the campus nationals have 
a total budget of $10,088,150 and are forced to send over 4K^ of this, or $4,74(> to their 
national organizations. These payments, furthermore, do not in the majority of 
cases include keys or pins." NSFA 

(Editorial reprinted from the Tulane Ilullahaloo) 

Students present a curious complex of nature; they come to college, invest con- 
siderable sum in tuition, fees, hooks and many other educational expenses, and then 
refute dividend* when the university endeavors to pay. 

These same Students wotdd not think of investing in a banking institution which 
was thought insolvent, nor in storks and bonds which they knew to be worthless, 
nor in an outworn automobile. Vet in their university outlay they do much worse 
than any of the above. The hard-earned cash of someone else is given them for the 
advancement of their culture and training. From the time of payment of fees, etc. 
the university, through it- professors, and in the classrooms, libraries, and organi- 
zations, begins to repay the investment. 

Bill it is not uncommon to hear Itodente boasting of having passed a course, 
frequently by the smallest margin, with Utile or no study. Or to hear students speak- 
ing of "crip courses" and how many they carry. In short, their investments and the 
funds of someone else mean nothing to them. 

Possibly no other outlay pay, the dividends of the college one. A great appreci- 
ation of the values of life, the understandings of fellowship, the joy of a trained 
intellect and the knowledge of association with the past are all for the taking for 
college students. 

The students who refuse these gifts, and boeet of it, at the expense of parents or 
guardians are the worst kind of parasites. No university should have room, or at-

Did you hear about the freshman who 
tried to save room rent by sleeping in an 
army cot in a pal's South College room, 
unbeknownst to the authorities? 

Who is that graduate student, a former 
all-star performer, who occasionally rides 
to school in the Amherst fire chariot? 

At the Stockbridge convocation held 
on Wednesday, Nov. 9, all students joined 
with Director Roland II. Ycrbcck and 
Secretary Of the College Robert D. 
Ilawley, in a ceremony in honor of the 
war dead of this college. 

Director Verbeck spoke of the signifi- 
cance of Armistice Day and after the 
reading of the poem, "In Flanders Field" 
he introduced Secretary Hawley, who 
was a member of the class of 1918, and 
saw service in France. 

In speaking of those early day* of the 
war, Secretary Hawley said in part, 
"There was a tremendous change from 
the active peaceful college life to the 
strife and turmoil of the war. The class 
of 1917 was almost entirely dispersed; 
no commencement was held in the spring, 
and diplomas were presented at a special 
evening exercise. 

"After the war a feeling persisted that 
a memorial of some sort should be had to 
commemorate the sacrifice of those stu- 
dents who so bravely laid down their 
lives for their country. President Lewis 
first conceived the idea of what is today 
known as Memorial Hall, and received 
the enthusiastic support of the alumni." 

After Secretary Haw ley's address, Di- 
rector Verbeck read the roster of the dead, 
which was followed by placing a beautiful 
wreath in Memorial Hall. The Stock- 
bridge student body, two abreast, mar- 
shalled by Edward Uhlman S'.'M, inarched 
from Stockbridge Hall to "Memorial" 
followed by Stephen Kldred, senior class 
president, and Albert L. Smith, freshman 
class president, carrying the wreath. 
Guards of honor were Thomas F. Furze, 
president of A.T.C., and Edwin N. Pierce, 
president of Kolony Klub, Director 
Verbeck and Secretary Hawley.

some tendency to supi>ort only under- 
takings for which there is a definite use." 

Basil Wood, librarian, and Miss Chap- 
man, his secretary, who have been in 
Boston since last Friday conferring with 
the architect about the plan of construc- 
tion, are expected in Amherst tomorrow 
with a definite announcement of the 
completed plans. The architects are 
Morse, Dickinson, and Goodwin of 
Haverhill, designers of the Physical 
Education building. Clinton F. Goodwin, 
a member of the firm, is a graduate of 
Massachusetts State College in 1916. 

In an interview recently, Basil Woo. I 
stated that the need for a suitable library 

hi i been felt for over twenty years, as the 
prpeClH building is inadequate and not 
fireproof. The present library contains 
over ninety thousand books and over 
fifty thousand classified pamphlets while 
the new library will have storage space 
for one hundred and forty thousand 
volumes and a minimum capacity of 
I luce hundred and fifty readers. 

Lent week the committee on planning 
of the trustees of the college announced 
that the new library, a two story struc- 
ture, will be constructed on the present 
Drill Field between the Drill Hall and 
South College. The first lloor will con- 
tain a general delivery desk, general 
offices, a large, beautiful reading room in 
the left wing and in the other wing a 
general reference reading room, biblio- 
graphy room, and a catalog room. On 
the second floor will be a general reading 
room for faculty and graduate students, a 
space for exhibitions, and a memorabilia 

With a capacity of 150 men, the new 
dormitory will be located on the hillside 
near the present orchard to the east of 
the Abigail Adams House, the women's 
dormitory, facing west, overlooking the 
Berkshires across the Connecticut Valley. 
The dormitory, a four-story structure, 
will t>e of early Georgian-Colonial archi- 
tecture, in keeping with the locality and 
climate but maintaining the simplicity 
and dignity of a dwelling. On the upper 
three floors will be double-study rooms 
and on the main floor will be a ljbrary or 
quiet room. The basement will include a 
large recreation room, a trunk room, 
coat room, and janitor's quarters. Two 
interesting new improvements in the new 
dormitory will be a elevator trunk lift 
and an electric button in every room, 

connected to a central push-button Sys- 
tem in the general office. 

In the words of the architect, Lewis 
Warren Ross, M.S.C. class of 1917 and 
a graduate of the Harvard School of 
Architecture, "The dormitory building is 
designed with complete consideration of 
economy, utilization, maintenance, and 
the minimum of upkeep expense."

diately began and were long in being 
removed as many false claimants arose. 
The administrators also found that the 
testator's property, with a supposed value 
of $3,000,000, had shrunken greatly due 
in part to over-assessment of certain 
property in Boston, and that an immediate 
sale would not even satisfy the specific 

A way out of this dilemna was finally 
arranged in 1929 by passing a bill through 
the Massachusetts Legislature to suspend 
taxation on the Boston property which 
was settled as the largest bequest, 
$2,000,000, »° r a fund which will aid 
World War veterans of Boston and will 
revert to the residue after forty years. 

The final residue in 1981 for the 
agricultural fund was about 9300,000, 
the use of which had been anticipated 
since 1924. The fund is now administered 
to entirely by three trustees, appointed 
by the governor, under the supervision of 
the State Commissioner of Agriculture. 
The college is represented at the trustee 
meetings by a committee of the Alumni 

Aid rendered by the fund consists of 
loans of the income without interest 
charge to graduates of the four-year 
course about to enter on "agricultural 
pursuits." The latter term covers forestry, 
greenhouses, landscape business, and 
many other terms although one feature 
of the interpretation prohibits a loan to

East was East and West was West , but

lecording to Abraham Naoum, graduate 
Itudent of the horticulture manufactures

During four hundred years of Turkish 

lule, the country was non-existent as far 

ks the rest of the world was concerned. 

Ind the glories of her past were forgotten 

[long with those of Nineveh and Babylon. 

Baghdad, the capitol, was associated with 

Arabian Nights. Baghdad, Besna, and 

Mosul are among the most ancient cities 

the world, and were at one time the 

enters of commerce and calture. During 

Ihe first years of the World War, after 

Turkish rule was displaced by King 

Faisal, a new spirit of nationalism arose 

rhich is still strong and promises much 

Dr Iraq. Western clothes, customs, and 

deals were adopted by many with the 

lamentable result that the government 
was forced to put a ban on the "Charles- 
ton" which had also crept in with the 
rest. "Rummy" a favorite on most 
campi, also took the country by storm 
and soon replaced the ancient games of 
"Turkish Istanbul" and "oochli." A few- 
evils likewise were adopted by Iraqs; 
Scotch whiskey and German beer are 
sold at every restaurant. As America 
has been the model for his countrymen, 
Mr. Naoum is now wondering what the 
next adoption will be. 

Schools, hospitals, links, end play- 
grounds, did not exist under Turkish 
rule, but were an innovation after the 
war by the native government. At that 
time there was a Ink of pharmacists and 
doctors. Consequently the government 
started its educational program with the 
building of a school of pharmacy, and 
sent the Syrian pharmacists bark to their 
own country. In 1986 a medical school

On Monday. The- State commission will 
open the bidding for the construe lion 
work to the public for a short period, 

after which the- State- Commission will

for the new library arc still the object of 

much discussion, no final announcement 
has been made con c e r n ing the definite 

construction of the new building. 

Hasil Wood, librarian of the college, 
when interviewed Tuesday, said that he 
was leaving for Boston that night for 
another discussion with the archttet ts, 
and that he h»|H-d that the plans would

not been able to make a definite d ecision

two local poets, Sid ami Sam: 
Once upon a dogfish spiny 

Not so large and yet not tiny 
1 made a deep mill- ventral cut, 

Kxposing all the gruesome gut. 
Besides that corpse, 1 stood there 

To put my hand inside, not daring. 
1 saw its organs one by one, 

And now my task had begun. 
From its pleuropentonial cavity 

1 tried to find its specity gravity, 
But achieving no success at all, 

1 proceeded from the body wall. 
A pair of livers caught my eye, 

Which besides the median lol>e did 
Then much to my dismay and awe, 

A bloated stomach there I saw. 
And there below it the spleen, 

Triangular and partly green. 
A mottled intestine stretched its length, 

Whose spiral valve did give it 
I heard the bell and saw the door, 

And I knew that I could do no more. 

On Friday, Nov. 17, the Stockbridge 
eleven journeyed to Danvers, MlM, tO 
meet the Esses Aggie's football team. 
Coach Lorifl Hall started the entire 
second team and Kssex found little diffi- 
culty scoring 13 points in short order to 
take the lead. The first team replaced 
the seconds at this point and made a fifty 
yard drive down the field, Steve Eldred 
scoring the touchdown, and Russell Wood 
kicking the point. In the second half 
Stockbridge scored twice. The first was 
made on a pass to Captain Luis Zuretti, 
and the second by Kenneth Reid; both 
tries for points failed. 

Essex made a last minute play by 
passes but was checked, the game ending 
19-13 in favor of Stockbridge. 



Since the establishment of the Greek letter fraternities and sororities in American 
colleges and universities, there has been much favorable and unfavorable criticism 
written about these societies. At the present time there is a movement throughout 
the East and the Middle West to investigate the fraternity and sorority activities 
in an effort to determine their educational value. Questions are being asked of the 
men and women who defend and support such organizations, question such as these: 
"For what purpose were sororities and fraternities founded? For what purpose do 
they exist? Do they fulfill their purpose? Do fraternities and sororities make any 
bc.ielicial peculiar contributions to collegiate life? Can these purposes be lettered, 
and if so how?" These questions are not asked in an antagonistic spirit but rather 
in the spirit which seeks to improve American educational institutions. 

Purpose of Greek Letter Societies 
The purposes for which fraternities and sororities were founded varied as did the 
men and women who established them. We may say, however, that in general these 
organizations were founded for the purpose of developing mind and body, of creating 
character, and of training the individual in social intercourse. Although these aims 
may' or may not have been the immediate purpose of the founders of the societies, 
these aims are included in the constitution of modern fraternities and sororities. 
These ideals, however, have become hazy, indistinct, and almost forgotten, and one 
who thoroughly studies secretive Greek letter societies realizes that they fail to 
fulfill their purpose. The proofs of this statement are close by on our own campus. 
There is no real attempt on the part of the fraternity or sorority members to incre.i-.' 
the mental efficiency of the undergraduates. The officials of these groups may try- 
to raise the average mark of the house but not to improve the thinking abilities of 
the student for his own sake. Many fraternity and sororit) houses lack health rules, 
others which possess thern do not enforce them. Late hours, lack of rest, haphazard 
sleeping periods, dissipation and lack of proper exercise are not beneficial to health. 
The total lack of manners in many dining halls, rec ept io n rooms, and meetings is 
another evidence of the inability of the fraternities and sororities to live up to their 
purpose. The boisterousness, the unrestricted frivolity, the complete lack of re- 
straint, the consorting with people who have detrimental effects on men and women, 
the indolence and indulgence bred in many houses are not constructive to character 

nor helpful in social intercourse. 

Contributions of Fraternities and Sororities 

Because of the intangibility of the contributions, it is difficult to say whether or 
not fraternities and sororities make lasting and peculiar contributions to collegiate 
life. Such things as the ability to get along with other people, a breadth of view, 
tolerance, geniality, and felicity of personality are said to be secured almost entirely 
from membership in societies of this kind. We know and many people know men 
and women of the same organization who refuse to speak to one another or help one 
another other men and women who are narrow and intolerant, others who are morose 
and possess no felicity of personality. These things, supposedly the special gifts d 
secret socictv life, can be secured from other sources. These organizations oiler no 
Intellectual stimulation anymore than ordinary rooming houses; no physical de- 
velopment any more than dormitories. In so far as we can see fraternities and so- 
roritLs make no peculiar contributions to collegiate life. 

Reorganization Necessary 
"Can these purposes be bettered, and if so how?" These purposes can be bettered 
it seems to us through i larit'uation, and this can be accomplished only through a 
reorganization of the fraternity-sorority System. This reorganization is necessary in 
order that the purpose of these groups might become definite, clear, and pertinent 
rather than remain indefinite, hazy, and not fulfilled because they are subordinate 
to other superficial and immediate aims. This reorganization would release money, 
energy, and time for the pursuit of studies and the attempt at self-improvement and 
discipline. This reorganization must come through the abolition of the secrets of the 
fraternity; the elimination of membership restrictions, severance of relations with 
national organisations, the restriction of activities to studies rather than campus 
politics, and the abolition of fraternity ritual. These eliminations would help clear 
away much of the rubbish which makes fraternities and sororities so inefficient. 
This new system would eliminate dues, national fees and payments; problems of 
finances so far unsolved by student administrators would be done away with; the 
futile process of rushing would be abolished. Thus time, energy, ami money would 
be devoted to the development of the man and woman. 

The Creation of "Halls" or "Houses" 
Through this reorganization, we would have instead of the secretive Greek letter 
fraternity and sorority, rooming and boarding "halls" in the very buildings where 
the secret organizations now exist. Supervision of these "houses" or "halls" would 
be by proctors appointed by the administration after these prospective proctors had 
passed tests for character, "integrity, knowledge, and geniality. The various houses 
would have their intramural sports, their immaterial advantages, their house dances, 
and their "esprit dc corps" with much of the irrelevant eliminated. These new houses 
would be Operated fot the benefit of the individual student and college rather than

tors through the releast of energy for worthy purposes, these houses or

Instead of closed secret fraternities, weakly promoting the welfare of the student, 
after this reorganization, we would have open, non-secretive halls of study, room

With a record of four wins and one 
loss, the State varsity cross-country 
team closed its season a week ago last 
Monday by placing eighth in the New 
England Intercollegiates ahead of Tufts 
and Springfield. Only one man will be 
lost by graduation, Captain David Caird, 
who has starred for three seasons on the 
harriers' team. 

Coach Derby had only one veteran 
from last year, Caird, available at the 
start of the season; Stepat, a transfer 
from Northeastern, was ineligible last 
sear on that account, while Dunker, 
Proctor, and Bishop were running for 
the freshmen. This combine clicked in 
the first meet to trounce Tufts over the 
Medford course, 22-33, with Caird, 
Stepat, and Proctor coming in together 
for first honors. Against St. Stephen's 
these men collected five of the first six 
places to turn back the Saints 17-38; 
while in the Northeastern race, Walt 
Stepat nosed out Dick Stimpson of the 
Huskies as his mates contributed to a 


In spite' of the three inch blanket of 
sticky snow that covered the field and 
hindered all attempts at ground passing, 
the Massachusetts State varsity soccer 
team wound up its fourth intercollegiate 
soccer season last Saturday with a sur- 
prising upset over a strong Wesleyan 
team at Middletown by the count of 
4 to 1. Incidentally, this victory cul- 
minates a highly successful four year 
stretch of intercollegiate soccer at State 
under the direction of Coach Larry 
Briggs. The game was much more cl6sely 
fought than the score indicates. The 
determination of the twelve seniors — 
seven of State and five of Wesleyan— 
precipitated what was the hardest game 
for State to date. 

The difference in the score is the mere 
result of the capitalization of oppor- 
tunities by the Maroon and White team. 
The first quarter got under way very 
slowly- both teams endeavoring to get 
accustomed to the slippery field and the 
handling of the ball which was made a

veritable snowball by the snow which 
adhered to it. Towards the end of this 
period, Jackson opened the scoring for 
State with a kick from a general melee 
in front of the net. In the final minutes 
there was another mixup in front of the 
Wesleyan goal with three State men in 
strong scoring position. However, the 
period ended before any threatening 
action was performed. 

The second and third quarters found 
the determined Cardinal eleven staging 
a strong offensive game. Time and time 
again the clever and versatile Wesleyan 
forward wall led by Roxby and Talbot, 
penetrated State territory just so far as 
to be' beyond scoring distance due to 
the sterling defense work of Cowing, 
Landsman, and Talbot. During these 
two periods the Connecticut team ex- 
hibited the best wing attack that State 
has yet encountered. Roxby, the aggres- 
sive and flashy Wesleyan left wing, who 
has been the outstanding soccer player at 
Wesleyan for the past three years, was 
closely watched and covered by the State 
wings so that he did not run wild as he 
usually does. The Cardinals were quick 
to take advantage of the fact that State 
was putting itself out to watch Roxby 
and put Talbot, the right wing, at the 
head of the attack which backed State 
deep into its own territory. 

Late in the third period, these attacks 
netted them a lone goal which TallxH 
pushed into the side of the net. How- 
ever, coming into the final period, State 
changed its tactics, and itself exhibited a 
strong offense. Hunter took a short pass 
from Bowler and booted a hard fast shot 
at Allen, the Wesleyan goalie, who got 
his hands on the ball but couldn't apply 
enough resistance to stop the heavy and 
slippery ball. A few minutes later Cowing

Polhemus, freshman cross-country star, 
cracked Bob Murray's old record over 
the 2.7 miles freshman course last October 
26th, lowering the time to 13m. 40. 5a 
Carl Dunker made the best time la-t 
year, running the three miles in 14:30, 
while Bob Murray's old time for the year 
before was 13:61. Polhemus is a quarter- 
miler and half-miler Ix-sides, holding the 
records in those events at Mt. Ilermoii. 

The State varsity cross-country should 
have run the Lord Jeff harriers this year. 
Williams won the "Little Three" cham- 
pionship in that sport last Saturday with 
the low score of 27 points, Amherst com- 
ing next with 39, and Wesleyan third 
with 84. Gregory of the Royal Purple 
who tied Stepat for first honors in the 
State-Williams meet copped first place 
in that race. The Maroon runners who 
easily downed Williams 19J-35J three 
weeks ago would have made short work 
of the Sabrina representatives from the 
other end of town. 



Fresh from a victory over the Rensse- 
laer I'olyteih Kngineers, the Maroon and 
White gridslers await the attack of the 
Tufts College eleven on Alumni Field nt'M 
Saturday in Massachusetts State's ob- 
jective game of the season. A win over 
the strong Jumbo team who has an im- 
pressive record of five victories ami two 
defeats to date would be the Inst since 
102o when Massachusetts State took over 
Tufts 0-4. Since that time there has 
been two ties; one in 1929 and the other 
in 1931 and the game Saturday which 
closes Massachusetts State's football slate 
of the season, will la- the 3lst contest in 
the traditional series between the Tufts 
gridmen and the Maroon and White, 
Tufts having won If), State 10, and there 
being five ties. 

The Jumbo gridsters o|iened their sea- 
son by defeating the Colby C illege eleven 
by the store of 6-0, and followed that 
victory with another over a strong 
Micldlebury outfit with the decisive score 
of 20-0. Then came the defeat of the 
Connecticut State gridsters 42-0, a team 
which the Taubeinen overcame 40-7 earl- 
ier in the season. Williams took the Tufts 
icon in the next game by a 0-0 margin. 
'This same Williams team defeated Am- 
herst 14-0 last Saturday who in turn 
took over State 14-0. The next Saturday 
saw another victory for the Jumbos, this 
time over New Hampshire, 6-8, and still 
another the following week over Boston 
Univ., B»-o. Last Saturday the Polar 
Bears overran the Jumbos with the sec ire 
of 20 12. 

The Maiilymen came out of the Bow- 
doin fracas with numerous minor injuries, 
which may or may not keep some of 
Tubs' valuable men out of action Satur- 
day. Kay Woodworth, Jumbo tackle 
suffered a hip injury and Pat Clark 
received a cracked rib, the results of 
which have not yet lieen determined. 
Captain Mc( ionagle aggravated a should- 
er injury that he had received in an 
earlier game. The Bowdoin team took 
advantage of Tufts poor tackling to gain 
numerous first downs and four touch- 
downs, but Jack Hogean, Jumbo back, 
starred with his flashy passing by means 
of which the Tufts eleven gained most of 
its ground. With the statistics as they 
stand, the game promises to lie a great 
battle lietween two strong teams. Out 
of seven games on each team's slate, lioth 
elevens have won five and lost two making 
a strong incentive to chalk up another 
victory. In view of the long existing 
rivalry and the closeness of the scores in 
the past years, Saturday's game will be a 
hard fight for both teams. 

Although Tabor Polhemus, captain of 
the Maroon freshmen, again took indi- 
vidual honors, Stockbridge won the four- 
team race last Thursday with the low 
score of 30 points. Second went to the 
State freshmen with 43, G re enfiel d High 
came next with 57, and the State fayvees 
were last with 60. Neither of the Amherst 
teams competed. 

The Tufts contest will mark the closing 
of the college football career of one of the 
most outstanding grid men that Mass., 
chusetts State has produced. Captain 
Lou Bush has had a football record at 
State that has never been equalled by 
am Maroon and White player. Weighing 
but 147 pounds, the diminuative halfback 
has twisted and spurted to make national 
renown for himself throughout his three 
years of football activity. Running up 
for second honors in national high scoring 
as a sophomore, he claimed first place at 
the outset of his junior and held it through- 
out the season to come out far ahead of 
his nearest rival. His good judgment as 
captain this year has helped the Maroon 
and White team out of many dinv-.ulties 
and he has led the team to a suco.-ssful 
season. With a victory over 'I ufts as an 
objective, the Taubeinen will put forth 
all they have in the game next Saturday 
to give the Jumbos plenty of opposition 
in hopes of closing their season with a 
wanted victory over the Medford eleven.

field to Rensselaer's 14-yard line before-

against the Troy eleven for U-ing offside

Stewart added the extra point with a

In the second period Stewart heaved 
another pass to Bush on his own 40 yard

field run, raced through the Engineers 
to cross the- goal line- for State's sc-c ond

conference were such notables as Secre- 
tary of Agriculture Wallace, Dr. VV. I. 
Myers, newly appointed Governor of the 
Farm Credit Administration, Dr. George 
R. Zook, U. S. Commissioner of Educa-

upon subjects related to the problems and 
the progress of the National Recovery 

Because of the vast scoim? of the prob

is divided into three parts: the Executive 
Committee, which is the governing group; 
the Executive Body, composed of the 
presidents of the various colleges repre- 
sented; and the various Sections or 
Standing Committee. There are three 
■actions, each having an administaitive 
committee, which make reports covering 
the three fields of Agriculture, Engineer 
ing and Home E conomics . 

These various sections or standing com- 
mittees make their reports to the Execu-

cussions on the material covered by the 
re|R>rts. It is here, of course, stated 
President Baker, that the great interest

Six Thousand Tons of Coal a Year 

Required to Furnish Heat and 

Eight to College Buildings 

When a visitor nears the campus of 
Massachusetts State College, he sees two 
prominent objects simultaneously — the 
spire of the old chapel and the smoke- 
stack of the power plant. If, however, the 
usual supply of heat and light suddenly- 
failed, the attention of the student would 
be rudely drawn to the less artistic of the 
two structures. What would he find if he 
visited the power plant? 

He would discover that the plant was 
valued at $<)2,(KX). This sum would buy 
approximately eighty thousand meals at 
the cafeteria. 

He would find that twelve men feed 
three boilers six thousand tons of coal a 
year. This sum would heat five hundred 
homes during a year. On a very cold day, 
thirty-five tons are required to keep the 
College buildings heated. 

He would find that the three boilers 
require seventy-five thousand gallons of 
water a day. Such a quantity would 
supply a thousand of his schoolmates 
with drinking water for six months. This 
water in t he form of steam circulates over 
two and one-half miles of pipe on the 

He would discover that three turbines 
generate one million and a quarter 
kilowatt hours of electricity a year. This 
amount would supply a small town for a 
year. Eight miles of wire are used to 
carry the electric current about the 

Perhaps, after getting all this infor- 
mation the student would realize that 
the hundred foot pile of bricks stands for 
an important part of the college. The 
power plant has the responsibility of 
keeping over forty buildings supplied 
with heat and electricity. Over one 
thousand people are dependent upon it 
for light and warmth. 


In an effort to save the old Stockbridge House, an old 
structure intimately connected with the early history of 
the college, repair work was started under the super- 
vision of Clarence A. Jewett, superintendent of buildings. 
Because of lack of funds, the work will be limited, but it 
is estimated that enough work can be done to save the 
house from collapse. At present the men are strengthen- 
ing the foundation by reinforcements of stone. 

The StockbridfJC house was formerly the home of Levi 
Stockbridge, a former president of the college. It was 
standing on one of the six farms taken over when the 
college was founded, and has the distinction of being one 
of the earliest houses in the history of Amherst. In a 
small garret office over the carriage house in the attached 
wing was President Stockbridge's office and there many 
of the important events of the college were discussed. 

The house is located directly west of French Hall. It 
is built in the colonial manner with a sunken front door- 
way, tiny window panes and sloping walls. A chimney, 
which is now removed, covered an area of 13(i square 
feet and provided three fireplace openings and a Dutch 
oven. Much of the old paneling is still preserved and it 
conceals a secret room and two secret drawers. Hand- 
wrought hardware and hand-hewn timbers are used 
throughout the house. 

As yet the ultimate end of the ho.ise has not been 
decided. A move to use the house as a faculty club has 
l>een suggested, but a lack of funds prevents the execu- 
tion of the plans. For forty years the house has been 
used by the college as workmen's quarters and recent ly 
it has served as a dwelling place. At various times sug- 
gestions have been made for its use as a drafting labora- 
tory for the department of landscape architecture. 

In this manner, Professor Rand describe* the Stock- 
bridge House on a December day in 187o, in his book 
Yesterdays at Mass. State College: "Facing the hillside 
site which French championed in vain stands the house 
in which the harassed Judge resided. On the southern 
wing it degenerates, after the manner of old New England 
farm houses, from a gracious colonial dignity into an 
open woodshed and barnly tagon's. And a tiny second 
story room above a carriage house, the only approach to 
which is an outside stairway in the woodshed, is the 
study of Levi Stockbridge. Professor of Agriculture, 

"It is the same disheveled room today. The stove, too, 
is all but disreputable. It is rusty and dented and so 
small that it can hardly accommcxlate more than a 
single stick of wood at a time." 

Levi Stockbridge, himself, is pictured sitting in one of 
the two easy chairs, with his long legs stretched out 
toward the stove. In the other chair, young Bowker, 
who has come to visit the Professor, sits, and "wonders 
vaguely how the Professor can find time to prepare his 
lectures and keep that fire going too." 

In describing the room as it appeared to the students 
at the college during Stockbridge's occupancy of the 
house, Professor Rand goes on to say: "There is, of 
course, a cluttered desk. Upon it stands a simple tripod 
microscope. There are shelves against the wall, contain- 
ing miscellaneous articles, but mostly books, in various 
and careless array. Among them are books of law, for 
Stockbridge is frequently called upon by fellow farmers 
for legal guidance. . . Bowker notices, hanging beside a 
window, a dozen ears of corn, for seed. They gleam there 
like a badge of office in the half-light of the room." 

Students, Faculty 
Visit N. E. Council 

Lister and Kozlowski to Attend Meet- 
ing of New England Council at Boston 

Dudley Harmon, executive vice-presi- 
dent of the New England Council, in his 
recent address at convocation tendered the 
students an invitation to attend the New 
England Council meetings which are to 
be held in the Hotel Statler, Boston, this 
week. In acceptance of this invitation, 
William S. Lister and William Kozlowski 
both members of the senior class and 
majors in agricultural economics are to 
be student representatives at the con- 
ference. The college will also be repre- 
sented by Dr. Alexander E. Cance, head 
of the department of agricultural eco- 
nomics, and several other members of the 
faculty and administration. 

The Council holds its first meeting at 
2 p.m., Thursday, Nov. 23 with a general 
conference at which the governor of each 
of the New England states will be present. 
At 7 p.m. the Council will hold a banquet 
in the hotel ballroom. 

On Friday, Nov. 24, the second day of 
the conference, district and special meet- 
ings of the agricultural, industrial, and 
social elements of the council will be held. 
Among those who will address the various 
sessions of the conference are Fred Waugh 
of the Bureau of Agricultural Economics, 
Washington, D. C; Louis Kirstein, chair- 
man of the Industrial Advisory Board and 
Louis Douglas, director of the Federal 
Budget. The conference terminates Fri- 
day with a luncheon at noon. 


Emily Dickinson and David Grayson 
Among Those of National Repu- 
tation Who Have Made 
Amherst Their Home 

"Amherst, except for Concord, Mass.," 
said a professor of English recently, "is 
the most interesting town in the United 
States from the standpoint of literature. 
Eight authors more or less famous in 
American literature have made their 
home in this community sometime during 
their careers." 

Emily Dickinson, Robert Frost, David 
Grayson, Clyde Fitch, and Eugene Fields 
are a few of the writers who have resided 
in Amherst. Emily Dickinson, charac- 
terized by many critics as the greatest 
woman poet in English literature with 
the exception of Elizabeth Barret Brown- 
ing, spent most of her life here. Miss 
Dickinson's life in Amherst was peaceful 
and retiring. Born here, she attended 
the public schools living on Amity Street 
where her home still stands. In his 
history, Yesterdays at Massachusetts State, 
Professor Rand speaks of her somewhat 
aloft from the doings of the college men 
at Amherst and what was then Massa- 
chusetts Agricultural College. 

At the Amherst College library there is 
kept as a memorial, the very room in 
which Clyde Fitch wrote many of his 
plays which were the toasts of Broadway, 
Chicago and London. Fitch as a stu- 
dent at Amherst College participated in 
the doings of the students. His diary is 
replete with tales of celebrations of

College Stand On 

Liquor Is Same 

In a recent interview concerning the 
new liquor control bill which will soon 
go into effect in Massachusetts, Dean 
Machmer stated, "The administrative 
attitude toward liquor remains unchanged, 
in other words, excessive use of intoxi- 
cating drinks on campus is absolutely 

There was, even before Prohibition, a 
local option vote against the legal sale of 
liquor in Amherst, which has protected 
for a number of years both Massachusetts 
State and Amherst colleges. Now it 
depends on the town's future vote whether 
or not "taverns" will be licensed. If 
they are licensed, no trouble or marked 
change in the behavior of the students is 

"The men of Massachusetts State 
College," continued the Dean, "are ex- 
pected to be gentlemen, and gentlemen 
do not drink to excess or disgrace the 
group of which they form a part. The 
administration will, of course, interfere 
just as soon as the use of liquor brings 
the college into disrepute." 

In addition, it was noted that nearly 
every time liquor has been known to be 
on campus, an alumnus has been con- 
nected with it. The college administra- 
tion finds it difficult to control alumni. 
Students, on the other hand, would be 
immediately expelled under the same 

"The administration," concluded Dean 
Machmer, "will wait until a real problem 
arises, and then will take steps to meet it." 


Connects Underlying Systems of| 
Chemistry and Plant Physiology 

Introduction of an entirely new theory | 
into the field of plant and animal physi 
ology has been made by ex- President 
Roscoe \\ . Thatcher. Public announce 
meet was made on his visit to mid-western I 
universities during the past week. 

Dr. Thatcher, who has been doing) 
chemical research in the Experiment' 
Station since his resignation in 19.'J2, has! 
entitled his first treatment of the subject 
a "Proposed Classification of the Chemi- 
cal Elements with Respect to Their I 
Functions in Plant Nutrition." This will, 
in a fashion, somewhat follow the Period 
ic Table, dividing the chemical element-, | 
having similar biologic functions into 
eight groups by developing their chemical] 

While there has been much independent 
experimental Study on the- importance of I 
separate elements in plant growth, thi9 is 
the first attempt to systematize and 
simplify the known facts of mineral nu- 
trition of plants Dr. Thatcher also hopes I 
in establish a systematic basis for further I 

A unique feature of the hypothesis isl 
its highly general nature as it connects: 
the underlying systems of chemistry and 
plant physiology. Another is that it vat 
conceived only three weeks ago in con- 
nection with an address given at a plant 

In outlining his study, Dr. Thatcher j 
has divided the elements into eight major 
groups. The first four contain the well- 
known combination C. HOPK-NS CaFe 
Mg, and are termed: (1) Energy transfer! 
agent! used in photosythesis; (2) Energy 
storers, anions having a variable valence;! 
(3) Translocation reulators, cation form- 
ers with fixed valence; (4) Energy ex- 
change regulators, cation formers with 
variable valence. The last four groups 
contain elements whose functions are yet 
to be investigated, another work in which 
the ex-president is interested. 

On his seven-day trip to the mid-west. 
Dr. Thatcher presented his thesis at the 
Biological Club of the University d 
Minnesota, the Plant Science Seminar at 
the University of Wisconsin, and the 
Missouri Chapter of Sigma Chi at the 
University of Missouri. This trip wa- 
taken in his capacity as scientific advisor 
of the trustees of the Frasch Foundation 


Stephen Hamilton, with Class of '31, 
Had Exhibit in Memorial Building 

Stephen Hamilton, a meml>er of the 
class of 1081, will hold an exhibition of 
water colors and etchings in the Morgan 
Library at Amherst College from Nov 
P> to Dec. ."). Last year, during the 
month of Octe»l>er, Mr. Hamilton's pic- 
tures were on exhibit in the Memorial 

The exhibition at the Morgan Library 
includes thirty water color paintings and 
ten dry-point etchings. Stephen Hamilton | 
learned to etch at the Amherst Art Club 
under the direction of Mrs. Atkinson. 
His paintings are concerned with land- 
scapes for the most part showing scenes I 
in and around New Salem, a few "I 
Amherst landscapes, and some painted | 
recently at Monhegan Island in Maine 

Among many of the outstanding pic- 
tures are Prescott Farm House, picture I 
of Mount Monadnock from New Sdem 
Sap-Buckets, Winter in Cushman, I ). I 
Woods, and Church at Evening. These] 
are all water colors. The dry-point- 
include Evening, and Snow Storm. 

The Morgan Library is open to thel 
public from 2 to ti p.m. on Saturdays and 
holidays, and from 9 to 12 and 1 to 5 on 
week-days. The Library will not \>e open 
on Thanksgiving Day nor the day after 
Mr. Hamilton's paintings will l>e shown 
in the new Springfield Museum of Art in 
the near future.

Solo numbers as well as ensemble 
numbers were features of the program 
thus giving the audience an opportunity 
to get a more |»erfect impression of each 
individual artist, and thus to letter 
comprehend the part of each when play- 
ing together. The concert seemed par- 
ticularly unique for it is seldom that one 
has an opportunity to hear these instru-

Father Ahern is professor of chemistry 
at the Jesuit Seminary in Weston and is 
noted for his researches in that field. 
Last year he conducted the Catholic 
Truth Hour over radio station WNAC 
at the same time conducting the Question 
Box which was a part of the program 
sponsored by that religious society. 

Father Ahern is a noted authority in 
the field of Christian Apologies, lie is 
a graduate of Holy Cross, having studied 
in Rome and Paris. For many years he 
was professor of chemistry at Holy

The accompanist of the group is Mr. 
Weidner. Two years ago, Mr. Weidner 
gave an organ solo entitled "Bouquet of 
Roses" which he followed with "The 
Elfs." Numbers which the quartette 
sang were the ever popular "Dinah," 
"O Miss Hannah" and "Old Man River." 
One of the features of the program accord- 
ing to the report of the concert published 
in the Massachusetts Collegian was an 
arrangement of a popular song in which 
each meml>er sang separately, followed 
by the entire group in the chorus. 

"This arrangement" according to crit- 
ics, "offers an opportunity to judge the 
singers separately and to understand the 
merits of the quartet compared with 
other forms of group singing." In their 
last concert on the campus the singers 
were called for encores after each num- 
ber on the program. 

J. Paul Williams 

Chapel Speaker 

Reverend J. Paul Williams, director of 
religious education at this college since 
192H, will speak in Sunday Chapel, Nov. 
21), on "Present Day Trends in Religion." 
He will prove that the idea that religion 
stands still is fallacious. Considering 
religion as any type of life which is con- 
stantly moving, Mr. Williams will dis- 
cuss the changes which have taken place, 
Mr. Williams, who was scheduled to 
speak in Deceml>er, will preach instead 
of Father Lyons whose address has been 
post|K>ned indefinitely. 

In 1922 Mr. Williams received his

of the University of Wisconsin, and later 
came back to Massachusetts in 1882 to 
accept the presidency of this college for 
the second time. He served here but two 
months when he died. In spite of the 
handicap of ill health, Dr. Chadbourne 
was a brilliant man and his son gave B 
very interesting portryal of his father.

Two Groups Hear 
Disarmament Talk 

Twenty-two members of the Social 
Science Club and nine members of the 
V.W.C.A. World Fellowship Group were 
guests Tuesday evening at an informal 
discussion with President Mary Woolley 
of Mount Holyoke College on World 
Disarmament sponsored by the Mount 
Holyoke Peace Club. Dr. Woolley, who 
is president of Mount Holyoke College, 
was the only United States woman dele- 
gate to the first session of the World 
Disarmament Conference at Geneva in 


In answer to one of the questions con- 
cerning disarmament, Dr. Woolley stated 
that there were two factions: the opti- 
mists and the realists. The realists say 
that war is inevitable and the optimists 
contend that such is not the case. The 
advantage is with the realists, however, 
since they obtain more publicity than the 
optimists, due to the news value of war. 
President Woolley places herself in the 
ranks of the optimists because, in her 
work as a disarmament delegate, she has 
been able to sense the underlying senti- 
ment of the various nations. To illus- 
trate, she told of a petition signed by- 
one hundred thousand French ex-service 
men which was presented to the disarma- 
ment conference and which called for 
immediate reduction in armaments. 

Another interesting point which Presi- 
dent Woolley made was that the muni- 
tions manufacturers are doing everything 
in their power to prevent disarmament. 
Dr. Woolley felt that the influence was 
not on the conference itself, but upon the 
peoples of the various nations. She 
furthermore added that the undercurrent 
talk of war between Japan and the 
United States bore unmistakable evidence 
of propaganda on the part of munitions

Posters from Nearly Every European 
Country Loaned by Art Association 

■Vlvertising posters from nearly every 
European country are on exhibit in the 
Memorial Building. They have been 
loaned by the College Art Association of 
New York City, a company of volunteer 
nature which collects and sends out 
various art exhibits. 

Posters from France, England, Cer- 
many, Holland, Norway, Sweden, Austria 
Hungary, Russia, Italy, and Switzerland 
advertise hotels, Shakes|>earean plays, 
railroad trips, and steamship lines. By 
far the most colorfjl are the railway 
ixjsters of different countries, principally 
Gernaay, Italy, and Francs. Another 
group of three pasters, unlike American 
advertising, is that of the London p ea ff l 
oi I.ancanshire, Big Ben and Stratford- 
on-Avon. Italian poster art is represented 
by | few forceful pictures of travel inter- 
im in clear deep colors, while Polish 
advertising tends to be more modernistic. 
Russian, Swedish, and French posters 
complete the display which presents the 
possibilities of advertising posters of 
small size designed for small posting 
spar • 

Large billboards are rarely seen in 
Europe, and for this reason the art of 
poater design has made great advances. 
As a rule, the amount of reading matter 
is greatly reduced and is usually de- 
veloped as a decorative feature. 

Approximately Half of Money from 
Chest for Local Welfare Work 

As a result of the genSTOUa giving "" 
the part of the students in the Campus 
Chest Drive, the Christmas season will 
be made more pleasant for many of the 
needy families of Amherst and Hotyohe, 
The funds received i" this drive are to be 

divided uitooon three different groups. 

Of th* money rec-ived in the drive the 
American Red Cross will receive $1 16, the 
Amherst Unemployment Relief Commit- 
tee will receive $22, and the remaining 
$7o will be spent for relief work in Hol- 
yoke. In dividing the money in this way, 

it will be eeea thai app r o xi mately one- 
h ilf of the money will Ik; used in local 
welfare work. 

The $22 which is to be expended for 
the needy in Amherst will l>e used to 
purchase food and clothing. An announce- 
ment has been received from Rev. Edwin 
Bradford Robinson of Holyoke that the 
money which is to go to Holyoke will be 
spent for a large number of different 
items. Some of the money will be used 
in the purchase of eye glaaaea as per 
order of the city clinic. A large portion 
of thj funds received will be used in the 
purchase of clothing and foodstuffs. 
Other specific purposes for which the 
money may be si>ent »rf '•'•" "' ; - light 
charges, medicines, and hospital mils. 
Fuel oil will be provided tor tenements 
in which there has bapO no oJigw .mathod 
of heating provided. Tnlse are all 
definite needs which must be filled if the 
needy |x?ople are to live in comfort 
through the winter months. 

Research Professor in Chemistry, 
Who Was President of College from 
1«>27 to 1«>A2, Dies Suddenly on 
Dec. 6 of Cerebral Hemorrhage 

Dr. RoeCOe W. That* her, president of 
Massachusetts Slate College from 1«>27 

to 1032, and reeearch profeeeor of chem- 
istry since that lime, died yesterday 
morning of Cerebr a l hemorrhage at the 
age of f'.l years. The attack occurred 

at s ;.o yesterday moraiag while Dr. 

Thatcher was at work in his laboratory, 
and death followed about 40 minutes 


Dr. Thatcher, celebrated as an agri- 
cultural chemist as well as an educator, 
had been in poor health for several years, 
and resigned the presidency of the college 
in the fall of 1989 because of his health. 
The trustees of the college accepted his 
resignation, and offered him the position 

of reeearch proaaaaor of chemistry, with 
duties to start when he felt physically 
able to take up the woik. On the lust of 
April of this year, wit h enthusiasm for the 
type of work from which he had lieeu 
separated since 1(117 because of executive

Basil Wood, the librarian of the college 
has been requested by the Federal 
authorities to send any books no longer 
of use to the college to the Citizens Con- 
servation Camps throughout the state. 
Mr. Wood in compliance with that re- 
quest has asked that students and faculty 
members having books or periodicals 
should hand them in to the library for 
shipment to these camps. 

One of the criticisms directed against 
the centralization of these young men in 
such camps has been the lack of educa- 
tional fa;ilitiei. The collection of books 
at the various camps, the authorities 
hope, will to a limited extent offset the 
disadvantage of lack of educational 

Books of fiction, travel, history, and 
periodicals such as the National Geo- 
graphic are especially desired. 



Pres. Baker's Comment 
on Dr. Thatcher 

In the passing of Dr. Roscoe W. 
Thatcher, the State College has lost 
not only a real friend but a man who 
through five years was an intensely- 
loyal and effective servant of the 
College. The way of Dr. Thatcher's 
passing at work in his laboratory 
is really indicative of his character 
and faithfulness through his years as | 
President of the College. I'robably no 
one will ever know what Dr. Thatcher 
went through when he was forced to 
realize that he was Hearing the end 
of his effective service to the College. 
His desire to continue what he had 
begUB at the College was iniense and 

though he came finally to know just 

what his illness meant, he was ex 
ceedingly loath to give Up. It is 
because of such devotion lo service 
and such faith in the College that we 

shall always owe Dr. Thatcher much 

for the spirit which he lias left as OUT

Date for Annual Event in Second 
Semester Not Fixed As Yet 

As a result of recent elections by the 
military majors, Page L. Ililand has been 
chosen chairman ol the Military Ball 
committee. The meinbeis <>t this com- 
mittee have not as yel selected I date 
for this annual affair but the Ball will be- 
held daring the ascoad semester. 

The Military Ball ol last year was held 
on March 4th, the night of President 
Roosevelt's inauguration and of the inau- 
gural ball at Washington. "Jack Johnson 
and his Cotton Pickers," the most famous 
negro band in New England, played for

March 8, 1983.

Characterising the Civilian Conserva- 
tion Cot pa as a successful experiment,'' 
Dr. Hugh P. Baker declared in a radio 
talk over Station WBZ last week, "It is 
increasingly evident that these camps, in 
changing forms perhaps, may l>ecome 
permanent agencies of helpfulness, not 
only stabilizing employment but in bring- 
ing all of our lands into ri^ht use." 
President Baker has sjK-nt most of his 
life in forestry and conservation work, 
until he assumed the president of the 
State College early in this year. 

"With fads which should come out of 
an economic survey of the state, and on 
the basis of gradual readjust incut to 
changea which are now taking place, 
there will come about a more satisfactory 
plan of land use. In other words, as time 
goaa on it will be easier to assign certain 
areas for agriculture and other areas for 
forest growth." 

The State Collage prcsidcnl advocated 
establishing what he termed "working 
foreata forests thai will satislv all our 
needs." lie continued, "Our needs in 
the forests for recreation, (or beauty, and 
for the purpose oi labor stabilization are 
very great. Back of these particular 

needs there ia always the need for arood. 
In this need for arood, the college is 
planning for the bringing back of small 
wood-using industries." 

With plans for new dormitories and a I 
library come thoughts of those build- 
soon to be Jass >d as "old." The' 
cationa of the Library, North and j 
a College, were great epochs in the j 
ory of the College. Amherst College 
offered Maaaachueetta Agricultural 
ge the use of her library. However, 
distance from town and afternoon 
•- interfered with taking satisfac- 
advantage of this offer. Hence, it 
necessary that the new college have 
iwn library. Previous to IKS:} books 
lining to the college had been stowed 
v in the reading room of North 
' ege. Finally, it was suggested that 
be expended to classify and catalog 
■• books; but since the money was not 
coming, old debts on the treasurer's 
s were collected and transferred for 
rary fund. 

In 1 884 through the efforts of President 
GreenOUgh, the legislature approve.! the 
plana for the Chapel Library building. 
The architect was Stephen C. Earle ..I 
Worcester; the contractor, John Beaton. 
The corner stone was laid with appropri- 
ate a ervl ce a , <>" ■ bleak, autumn day, 
Nov. ti, 1884. Beneath the corner stone 
were laid a copy of the original charter 

of the college, an ffii Index, a copy of the 

last Cycle, and several daily papers. An 
interesting feature of the excision was 
the reading of a letter received that day 
from John C. Cutter 72, then in Japan, 
sending his hearty go<xl wishes and a 
check for $100. A permanent library- 
fund of $10,000 was desired, but to 1887 
it had amounted to 89.168JB for the 
support of the library then containing 
1» 1,909 volumes.

Dr. Alexander E. Cence ol the depart

si,, ted that the United Slate- a- led

sentative of the Soviet government,

The last Russian government to be 
recognized by the United States was the 

Kerensky government which wae deponed 

by Trotsky and Lenlfl in November 1817. 
Dr. Cance peseta Out that this Trotsky- 
Lenin government, through immediately 
making |>eace with Germany, lost the 
favor of the allied nations and thus failed 
to receive due recognition from them. The 
United States government even refused 

nit ion after the war bad terminated 
becauee of the tremendoua amount of 
Communist propaganda then prevalent 
which advocated the downfall of all 
organised governments. I here were, how-

Because of the sudden death of President Roscoe Wilfred Thatcher, scientist, 
educator, and executive, there is added another name to the list of "immortals" of 
the Massachusetts State College. In the desire of making his immortality more 
lasting and more concrete, and of clarifying his place in the history of the develop- 
ment of the college, we have given in the following editorial a summary of his out- 
standing characteristics and of his contributions to the college during his adminis- 
tration as tenth president. 

As a scientist, Dr. Thatcher was preeminent as a chemist. His national reputation 
as an agricultural chemist established before he became the head of this institution 
bespeaks of his abilities in the field. His recently "Proposed Classification of the 
Chemical Elements with Respect to Their Functions in Plant Nutrition" established 
definitely his place in American science. As a sciencist, he was a thorough worker, 
a man intellectually honest, a man who was a lover of knowledge possessed of a keen 
insight into the physical world. He was an industrious and painstaking worker as 
evidenced by his chemical contributions to science. 

As M educator, he saw the problems of modern colleges with clarity, sanity, and 
with hope for the solutions of these problems. He conceived of vocationalism as the 
solution to the increasing complexity of the modern world. In his inaugural address, 
he gav^ the dementi of his educational theories when he said: "It is my earnest 
hope and ambition that Vt will always stand as proud exemplars of the best type of 
that vocational education which seeks to dignity and ennoble the agricultural and 
industrial pursuits of life, and to fit individual students for successful, intelligent, and 
contented occupai ions of some worthy vocation as citizens of this {rent democracy." 
When President Thatcher accepted the emblem of the presidency of Massachu- 
setts State College, he had, according to former President Lewis, three problems to 
solve, the probleme of definition, of adjustment, and of organization. During his 
administration the cluck between those men and womenof the state, of the college 
and of the student body who desired a strict vocational and agricultural education 
and thON who favored B liberal edw ation came to a climax. Flanked by these two 
opposing forces, he demonstrated his tactfulness and diplomacy when he so handled 
these two groups that with the exception of a small Hare, the clash did not cause 
too much trou: |e. When the proper time came for a definition of the purpose of the 

College, he |ave thai definition which was manifested in the change in name from 
Massachusetts Agricultural College to the Massachusetts Stale College. The in- 
creasing enrollment, the trends in agricultural, industry, and education demanded 
that the college adjust itself to the new movments in these- fields. Through the 
same diplomacy, the same tact, be brought about a partial readjustment which 
permitted the college to move forward. The problem of organization, he also at- 
tempted to wive by the limptificatiou of the courses offered in the college curriculum. 
We ran characterize him M a man by quoting from Professor Rand's recently 
published History of the College. "President Roscoe Thatcher people notice him 
quickly, then look a second time. There is something about his appearance (he 
titan body, the deeply lined open face -that suggests the Nebraskian prairies where 
he spent his youth." "There is nothing tempet mentally timid about this man." 
"He is making a good impression particularly upon hi.s staff. They like his genuiness, 
his courage, his horse-sense, even his occasional bluntness." He was cautious al- 
most too cautious before acting. There was nothing retiring about him; he was of 
the world. Nothing metaphysical nor ascetic, he was a man flesh and bones, solid 
and here. 

During his administration. President Thatcher made several definite contribu- 
tions to the college. The Stockbridge School of Agriculture was strengthened, stu- 
dent enrollment increased rapidly during his administration. The Physical Education 
building was constructed and dedicated during the year of his presidency. The 
student health service was inaugurated and the name of the college was changed. 
"We can sim erclv say," a reCCttl editor of the Colkgian writes, "that the period from 
1927 to PW-, the extent of Dr. Thatcher's administration, has brought about more 
significant changes than perhaps any other period in the history of the college." 
However, the greatest contribution of President Thatcher was himself. He gave so 
much of himself to the college, when weakened by an internal disease, that he 
shortened his own life. 

In summation, then, «« may say of Dr. and President Thatcher that he was 
preeminently a s.ientist who, suffering internally, devoted five years of his short 
life to the solutions of the problems of the Massachusetts State College, and that 
under his administration, the college greatly developed, accepting new duties and 
fulfilling its old as efficiently as ever.

Louie: "That wasn't put in to flavor

Outnumbered nearly two to one, the 
senior class of Stockbridge held off the 
freshmen in the annual hat rush on the 
drill field Nov. 27, to win by a margin of 
six caps. 

At 4.30 the seniors and freshmen lined 
up at opposite ends of the field facing 
each other; the caps were placed in the 
center. For a while, due to a high wind, 
it looked as though the hats would be 
blown across the valley. At the whistle 
the seniors and frosh charged towards the 
hats and a stern warfare was carried on, 
with grunts and groans rending the air 
as some gladiator's face was stepped on. 
At the whistle stopping the fray, a count 
of caps was taken and the score was, 
seniors 39 and freshmen 33. 

Any truth to the rumor that our new 
physics instructor has won many six-day 
bicycle races? 


The funeral of Dr. Roscoe W. 
Thatcher will be held at two o'clock 
Friday afternoon, in Bowker Audi- 
torium. The Rev. John A. Hawley 
of the First Congregational Church 
in Amherst will officiate at the ser- 
vice. Following the funeral services, 
the body will be cremated and taker 
to Minneapolis, Minn, for burial. 

Dr. Thatcher's graduate students 
are to act as pall-bearers and the 
cabinet which served under Dr. 
Thatcher while he was president, will 
be honorary bearers. Arrangements 
have not as yet been completed for 
ushers at the service. The classes of 
the college will end at 12 o'clock 
Friday noon in respect to Dr. Thatcher 
and to permit students to attend the 
funeral services.

North College teas officially opened on 

September 10, 1S98 to house f>4 students. 

In 1K.S4 it was declared "well nigh unfit 
for OCCttpancy" and was extensively re- 
paired. The two front rooms served as 

libraries. In 1908 it was thoroughly 
renovated into a modern dormitory, a 

dormitory minus the porch and either 

oddities. Hiis dormitory contained two 
reception rooms known as the "Social 

Union," a postoffice and the Colttfittn 

office in the east entry, dormitory and 

fraternity rooms on the upper floors, and 
B college store, post rooffl, and shower 
baths in the basement. 

South College replaced the old, original 
dormitory where the class ot 71 had lived 
and suffered through the first examina- 
tions. To this new dormitory in 1806 
came the first electric lights to appear cm 
the campus, South College has for 
several years been used not only as a 
dormitory but as the building housing 

the administrative offices <>t the College. 



(Continued from Page 1) 
caused us to desire to come to a closer 
understanding with Russia. In the first 
place, our export trade has fallen off 
greatly, many of the products which 
Russia formerly purchased of us she now 
purchases from ( .erinany. Aa a roult of 

our recognising Russia we hope that we 

may Win back some of this lost export 

trade. It is definitely known that Russia 

is desirous of purchasing American cotton, 
telephones, agricultural equipment, rail- 
road equipment , and other tyjies of he a\ v 
machinery, because she likes the quality 

of American products, but Dr. Cance 
points out that the primary reason for 
recognizing Russia is that we now recog- 
nize the folly of disregarding any nation 
which has become so fully established as 
has Russia. In short, we today l>elicvc 
that Russia is a prominent n, it ion and will 
continue to exist as such. The very fact 
that it has b ecome so strongly established 
should be sufficient cause for the United 
St.ites to recognize the nation. 

Since we, as a people, were becoming 
slightly less antagonistic to Russia. 
President Roosevelt decided that the 
time was ripe for him to enter into 
negot iations with Maxim Litvinov, the 
Russian diplomat who has played such a 
prominent part in forming unitary pacts 
between Russia and other foreign nations. 
Dr. Cance cites the points of agreement 
reached by these two representatives, 
Roosevelt and Litvinov, in their recent 
conferences. Litvinov promised President 
Roosevelt that no Communistic propa- 
ganda from Moscow would be spread 
throughout the United States. He prom- 
ised that all Russian claims of war 
damage done by the American army in 
Siberia would be waived, and that the 
claims against the Kerensky government 
would be ajudicated in the near future. 
President Roosevelt also secured the 
promise from Litvinov that all Americans 
in Russia will be granted perfect freedom 
to worship God in any way they may 

There are several definite results which 
will come as a result of recognition. 
Americans will now be able to obtain 
passports for Russia in a regular manner 
instead of sending to Russia for the 
passports as formerly. The United States 
will immediately establish a consular 
service in Russian cities. American citi- 
zens in Russia will now be under the 
protection of the American government. 
As regards the effect of recognition on 
American-Russian trade, Dr. Cance be- 
lieves that the ordinary man is inclined 
to put too much emphasis on the amount 
of trade we shall receive from Russia. 
He pointed out I he fact that in the past 

few years, commerce and trade between 

Stockbridge was defeated by the Deer- 
field Academy team in football on Nov. 
22 by one point, 7-0. The game was 
brilliant and hard fought, Stockbridge 
showing a very fine offensive, but un- 
fortunately was not able to convert the 
point after the touchdown, losing a 
chance to tie the game. Wood scored the 
touchdown for Stockbridge on a slant off 
tackle and then reversed his field crossing 
the goal line without a single Deerfield 
player near him, a beautiful 35-yard dash. 
Other Stockbridge seniors who played 
outstandingly were O'Connor and Don- 
dero at guards, and Captain Zuretti at 

Russia and Germany has increased per 
ceptiblv while that between the Soviet 
Union and America has fallen markedly. 
The increase in Russo-t.erman trade was 
caused by friendly relations between these 
two countries and extension of credit to 
Russia by the German government. 
Hitler, however, has antagonized the 
Soviet Union Government which will 
swing much of her trade to America. 

In summarizing, Russo- American trade 
Dr. Cance says, "The Soviet Union is 
very desirous of obtaining certain Ameri- 
can products, but the amount which we 
sell that government will depend on our 
willingness to extend worthwhile credit. 
Our American capitalists, who do not 
care to lend money to the Soviets, should 
take into consideration the fact that 
Russia has not defaulted on any of her 
debts. Again, the amount of trade will 
depend on our willingness to receive cer- 
tain Russian exports such as fish, furs, 
and managanese."

State has a record of 37 wins to 18 
defeats in cross-country since Coach 
Derby started guiding the harriers in 
1922. The best years were 1922 and 1925 
when the teams were undefeated, while 
the most disastrous season for the Ma- 
roofl runners was 1930 when they failed 
to win a single meet. 

Twice have all of the seven men on the 
Mate team finished before any of the 
opponent's harriers— the first thne against 
Worcester Tech in 1925 and the second 
sgsinst the Amherst athletes in 1920. 
Not one of the teams whom Massachu- 
setts has met more than twice has the 
advantage in the series, although there 
are two even counts. Wesleyan has a 
record of five victories and the same 
number of defeats at the hands of the 
Maroon forces, while Northeastern's is 
one aud one. The Jumbos, supposedly 
Mate's arch rival, has never triumphed 
over the latcer's harriers in the three dual 
meets. With Amherst, the count is six 
victories for the Maroon to four for the 
Lord Jeffs. St. Stephens has won only 
tne in six contests; yet they have fared 
[better than the Terriers of Boston Uni- 
versity who have conquered not once in 
their four meetings with the State run- 
Iners. Williams' record is three defeats to 
me win; while that of Worcester Tech 
tends at .sight to three. 

In the single contests with different 
■ol leges, the record is three defeats to 
\co triumphs. Connecticut State and 
Rhode Island Stale have each been de- 
eated once, while the wins have been 
becked up by Harvard, Rensselaer, and 
Springfield. State has not done very well 
n the New England IntercolL'giates or 
he Harvard Open Intercollegiates, never 
intsbiag any better than seventh in the 
New Englands or sixth in the Harvard

"Characteristic of the team was the 
fact that they played their hardest and 
didn't plan to loje." Thus Coach Larry 
Briggs sums up the attitude of his soccer 
team which has just completed its fourth 
successful season under his supervision. 
Coach Briggs further states that capital- 
ization of opportunities- -more so this 
season than in any other -played a ba^ic 
part in the success of his charges. 

Eour wins, three losses— two of them 
heartbreakers-— tell of the activities of 
the team on the field against the strongest 
opposition a State team has yet met up 
with on the soccer field. The team opened 
the season by taking the Worcester Tech 
booters into camp 3-1. Here the finesse 
of the State offense was manifested and 
gave indication as to the strong offensive 
play they were to exhibit all season. 
Jackson scored one goal which was just a 
continuation of his counters of the two 
previous seasons and which also put him 
one step nearer what was to be a nineteen 
goal total for his three years of inter- 
collegiate play. 

The toers from Trinity College checked 
the Bay State lads the following week, 
3 to 1. This loss did the team, as a team, 
as much good as a victory might have. 
The eleven clicked in fine style, and al- 
though the score was against them, they 
were awakened to their possibilities and 
from that point on played an aggressive 
game with the "never say die" spirit 
foremost in their minds. 

Tufts happened to be the next to play 
the Maroon and White squad. It felt the 
reaction of the State team from the 
Trinity game and were overwhelmed by 
the offensive power of the latter. 

State met Amherst ne\t and were 
downed by the slim margin of 1 to 0. The 
game was hard fought and was a typical 
State-Amherst tussle. The loss can be 
directly attributed to the failure to con- 
vert opportunities into realities. 

Dartmouth furnished the biggest thrill 
for the Bay Staters, and although the) 
were again on the wrong side of the score 
it can be readily announced that they 
provided no set-up for the Wah-Hoo- 
Wahs. It was a heart-breaker to lose 
the game having l>een about even till the 
Big Green scored in the last four minutes. 

State's oldest rival, Connecticut State, 
again succumlied to the offense of the 
Massachusetts men, 3 to 2. The Nut- 
meggers, who have yet to win a game

I wrap me in the satin of the sun, 

Radiant, golden -threaded gown of morn;

Many alumni and several members ol 
the faculty have spoken to us about t he- 
general absence of college spirit among 
the student body of this college and have 
lamented the indifferent support of the 
Maroon and White football eleven by the 
Massachusetts State students. Our grid- 
iron eleven has completed its 1933 season, 
winning five games and losing but three, 
a very successful record considering the 
fact that Massachusetts State has on its 
football schedule many colleges with a 
much larger enrollment than State. In 
reply to many comments made by the 
so-called "campus quarterbacks" about 
the play of the State football varsity 
during the latter part of the season may 
I say that the average student at Massa- 
chusetts State has had too positive cer- 
tainty about the chances of the State 
team to win, and has been too hasty in 
condemning the play of our varsity, 
apparently never stopping to think that 
the players out upon the field were the 
best we had. The average State student 
does not remenilier apparently that Coach 
Taube hai developed the Massachusetts 
State football fortunes tremendously in 
his first three years here and made the 
Maroon and White grid eleven an ob- 
jective team on all its opponents' sched- 
ules. The two years previous to Mel 
Taube'a arrival at State, the varsity foot- 
ball eleven won but three games and lost 
thirteen. In the three years of Tuufao's 
regime the Maroon and White has accom- 
plished the phenomenal record of IK 
victories, six defeats and two ties. In 
view of this remarkable achievement, it 
is Wjry irritating to hear students, criti- 
cize the work of the varsity, which was 
Crippled .ill season by an injury to its 
star back, Lou Mush. 

We wish that the students of Muss. 
State had more of the Notre Dame spirit 
Last wick before the Notre I). line scpiad 
departed for its big game with Army, the 
entire' student body accompanied the 

scpiad to the station regardless of tin- fact 

that Notre Dame bad lost five gamei this 
season. Before the "Irish" departed for 
New York preparat ions were made for a 
giant reception to lie held in honor of 
the team upon its return, regardless ol 
the outcome of the game which Notre 
Dame was entering as the heavy under- 




Having completed ■ successful season, 

his team winning five games and hieing 
three, Lou Bush, leader of the Maroon 
and White gridiron forces, with the assist 
ante of his cohorts, has given his selections 
for the outstanding players who have per- 
formed against Massachusetts State this 

English of Amherst is chosen as t In- 
most outstanding linesman, and Fisher 
of Rhode Island State, blading scorer of 
New England this season, is picked as 
the most outstanding back. Meyer, 
Rensselaer end; Hubbard, Huwcloin full- 
back; and Kehoe, Amherst back, have 
the honor of having been chosen twice 
by Captain Leary last year, and by Lou 
bush this season. 

In the opinion of Lou Hush, the Am- 
herst team presented the best passing 
attack, Tufts the hardest charging line, 
and Rhode Island State had the best set 
of running backs.

Because Ol his groat work on the grid- 
iron this tall, Lou bush has been rec ei vi ng 

honors from the various New England 
colleges during the past week. Captain 
bush, halfback of the Mass. State football 
eleven, has been chosen on the all- 
opponent teams of Tufts, St. Ansehns 
ami Rhode- Island. Donald Smith waB 
honored by Tufts as the best right end 
which opposed them this season and 
Paul Shaffuer, fiery guard, was selected 
as the liest guard which St. Anselms fated 
all fall. 

Lou Mush was selected as captain of 
the Rhode Island State- all opponent team 
by the head coach ol a team which in- 
cluded Brown in its schedule. Quoting 
from the Rhocic Island weekly: "Heading

duties, Dr. Thatcher took up some ie 

eearcb problems dealing with the letaer 

known chemical elements and their place 
in plant growth, lb' was bating his study 
on the hypothesis that some of the little 
known chemical elements take the place 
in plant growth which is occupied in 
animal nutrition by vitamins. 

Dr. Thatcher was bom on a farm in 
Medina County. Ohio, in 1K71>. Thirteen 
years later his family moved to Nebraska 
and settled on a prairie farm, near 
Gibbon. He entered the Iniversity of 

Nebraska in 1H«»2, worked his way through 
the preparatory and collegiate depart- 
ment! of the university, graduating in 

the course in chemistry in lS'.IS. 

After teaching in a high school for a 
year, he spent two years us assistant 
chemist at the Nebraska experiment 
station, moving tO the State College of 
Washington at Pullman, in 1901. Alter 
six yean he was made dim tor of the 

agricultural experiment station there, a 
position which he held until 1018. '" 
that year he moved to the l'niveisity of 
Minnesota, to beCOUM head of the depart- 
ment of chemistry in the school of a^ri 
culture at that institution. Four years 
later he was appointed dean of the de- 
partment of agriculture and director of 

the agricultural experiment station at the 

University of Minnesota. He was in 
Charge of this work during the war 
jieriod, when an extensive army manual 
training camp was in operation under his 

Dr. Thatcher moved to New York in 
1021 as director of the state agricultural 
experiment station at Geneva, and in 
1823 the station was combined with the 
one at Cornell University, and he became 
head of lioth experiment stations. 

He held this position until 1927, when 
he came to the Massachusetts State 
College as its tenth president. It was 
near the end of his live years as executive 
of the college that the name of the insti- 
tution was changed from Massachusetts 
Agricultural College to Massachusetts 
State College, a change which is regarded 
by many alumni ami friends of the college 
as the most Important forward step of 
the institution in years. 

During his administration Dr. Thatcher 
supervised and brought into effect a new 
system of freshman dormit >ries; radical 
revisions in the courses of study; im- 
proved opportunities for stall members to 

do graduate study for prolessional im- 
provement; a five year building program 
which involved remodeling two of the 
college buildings and construction of the 
physical education building. 
He has received the honorary degrees of 
Doctor of Agriculture from his alma mater, 
the University of Nebraska; and Doctor 
of I-aws from both Hobart College and 
Amherst College. The latter degree was 
conferred in June of 1932. 

Dr. Thatcher is the author of a well 
known textbook, 'The Chemistry of 
Plant Life," as well as many different 
scientific bulletins and articles in scien- 
tific magazines. 

During 1924-25, he was a member of 
President Coolidge'i Agricultural Con- 
ference Commission, the only eastern 
representative. He was a fellow in the 
American Association for the Advance- 
ment of Science and the American 
Society of Agronomy, serving as presi- 
dent of the latter organization in 1912 
and 1913; served as president of the 
American Society for Promotion of Agri- 
cultural Science in 1919 and 1920; and 
was a member of the American Chemical 
Society, Society of Kxperimental Medi- 
cine and Biology, the Society of Biological 
Chemists, Phi Beta Kappa, Phi Kappa 
Phi, Sigma Xi, Alpha Zeta, Gamma 
Sigma Delta, and Alpha Theta Chi. 

He is survived by the widow, the 
former Nellie Fulmer, and a daughter, 
Mrs. Lida Barber, of Shrewsbury, wife of 
Elmer Barber and a grandson Glenn.

In an interview yesterday, concerning 
the proposed construction work, Secre- 
tary Hawley stated, "Since the main 
objective of this program is to furnish 
work for the unemployed, only those 
projects are considered which offer a 
large opportunity for the use of labor. It 
is already evident that the college will be 
very substantially benefited by the im- 
provements to be made under this pro- 
gram and local unemployed persons will 
be benefited in proportion.''

from State, showed the strongest teau 
they ever had and it i^> a notaole fact 
that State scored more goals against thein 
than have any of the former's opponent ,. 
After piling up an early lead, Coach 
Briggs looked his substitutes over in 
action as they were content to play on 
the defense the second half. 

The last game of the season took pla< e 
on a field covered with snow. Displaying 
remarkable precision and offensive power, 
they trounced Wesleyan to the tune of 
4 to 1 for the third consecutive year. 
This victory was indeed noteworthy 
when one recognizes the feat the VY< 
lcyan Cardinals performed in holding a 
strong Yale team to a scoreless tie the 
previous week. Seven State seniors, play- 
ing their last game, put all they had into 
it and it is not difficult to imagine that 
this victory tasted sweetest to them. 

Those that Coach Hriggs will lose by 
graduation are: Captain Cowing, Bowder, 
Jackson, Kozlowski, Landsman, Mac- 
kimniie, and Talbot. In the three years 
they have played together these men have 
compiled an enviable record. They have 
won fourteen games, lost four, and tied 
one. Victories include .1 over Connecticut 
State, M over Wesleyan, 3 over Worcester 
Tech, 2 over Clark, 1 over Tufts who 
appeared on the schedule this year for 
the first time. They have scored a total 
of 39 goals to their opponents' 20, out- 
scoring them on an average of 2 to 1 
each game. 

Captain Cowing, a sure kicker all year, 
showed his mettle time and time againl 
as a leader and organizer of defense. 
Kozlowski, who can dribble and pass with 
the best of them, played a clever game 
in all the positions he was placed in, and 
although the records show nothing of it, 
was instrumental in many scores by virtue 
of his accurate passing assists. Jackson 
can well lay claim to the title "best center 
in State's soccer history." In addition to 
being high scorer, his ease in handling the 
ball marks him as outstanding in any 

Mackimmie, who improved a great deal 
in his senior year, could always keep the 
opponents on the jump by his clever 
weaving tactics. Talbot, Landsman, and 
Bowler worked hard, showed ability to 
pass well, and to top it off, exercised fine 
judgment in fathoming the plays of the 
opposing team.

Bay State Revue Takes Form of 

Musical Comedy This Year 

Instead of Usual Unrelated 

Series of Acts. 

"Let's Go Nutty," a musical com- 
ply in two acts, is to be presented 

Yiday evening, December 15, by the 
iRoister Doisters as the 1933 Bay 
jtate Revue. Not since 1916, when 
the Roister Doisters at commencement 
iresented the comedy "Pluto's Daugh- 

>r" has a musical comedy been given 
m the campus by them. 

In recent years the Bay State Revue 
tas consisted of various unrelated 
icts put on by members of the stu- 
lent group. The committee in charge 
jf the present Revue hopes that in 
the presentation of the musical com- 
ply, "Let's Go Nutty," the Revue will 

jntain more unity than in years past. 
The musical comedy, "Let's Go 

[utty," is entirely original with the 
students. Eleven songs, the music 
jnd words of which were composed by 
students, will be heard during the 
[how. The numerical scores have been 

rritten by W. Grant Dunham '35,

Body Wishes to Correct 

FeUe Impressions. 

In a recent interview with Miss

he plan and purpose of the associa- 
tion. Many students, both men and

correct these impressions. 
The position of the executive coun-

ully serve the student whom it rep- 
| m Tits, and still in no way overstep 
he bounds granted by the faculty, 
touncil tries to serve a two-fold pur- 
lo.-f, disciplinary and social. The 
Itvt is not a pleasant duty, but since 
iouncil holds to the belief that a 
Itizen is entitled to be judged by his 
leers, it endeavors to try cases fairly, 
nforcing what few rules there are. 
survey shows that in comparison 
[ith other colleges in New England, 
Ul college has few and lenient rules; 
fiese. then, must be strictly enforced. 
Mitt Jackson says: "The college is

py is now primarily a freshman 
ormitory, no longer housing all the

Many And Great Changes In College 

Administration, Personel, And 

History During 1933. 

1933! Soon it will be history. 
What could be more appropriate than 
to take stock of this year's events be- 
fore they are relegated permanently 
to history. 1933! It has been a 
year characterized by adjustments to 
meet new conditions. Progress and 
depression, both have exacted their 
tribute and it is hoped — a better 
Massachusetts State College is the re- 

On the one hand, there was the 
State Legislature seeking ways and 
means of reducing the cost of main- 
taining a state college and on the 
other hand was th<» student, handi- 
capped by financial stringencies, en- 
deavoring to complete his college edu- 
cation. The result was a compromise 
that, judging by results, was effective 
in satisfying every demand in the 

The annual appropriation from the 
state legislature was but $930,000, the 
smallest in years, and an increase in 
the yearly tuition from $60 to $100 
was voted by the Board of Trustees. 
In addition, the hourly rate paid to 
student labor was reduced from 30 
cents to 25 cents an hour. 

Of the various methods which stu- 
dents have of cutting, expenses, the 
most direct is on their board bill. And 
such is the method which many stu- 
dents took. The result was the fac- 
ulty approval to a "lraternity dining 
hall system under faculty supervision 
which was to last at least until 1938. 
This permits a great saving to the 
fraternity and sorority members. In 
addition, the administration did its 
part in reducing student taxes materi- 
ally and also, in reducing the cost of 
board in the dining hall. 

Another aid to the student was the 
establishment of an employment bu- 
reau under the supervision of Emory 
Grayson, assisted by Professor Glat- 
felter and Miss Skinner. This place- 
ment service assists in giving students 
part-time labor as well as endeavoring 
to place graduate students. As a 
means of assuring it a good start, the 
legislature voted a special fund of 
around $10,000 to be used in work- 
ing schoalrships of $30 each before 
November 30. And it can be stated 
here, that not a cent of this special 
grant was left. 

In administration and faculty cir- 
cles, the College experienced several 
notable changes. Dr. Hugh Potter 
Baker, who came from the State 
School of Forestry at Syracuse Uni- 
versity, took office as tho eleventh 
president of Massachusetts State Col-

Reporter Addresses 
Weekly Convocation 

Louis M. Lyons, '18, of The Boston 

Globe, Recounts His Experiences 

At Collegian Convocation. 

Recounting his experiences a- n 
porter for the Boston <ilobe, Louis M 
Lyons of the class of 1918 spoke la.-t 
Thursday at the convocation. In his 
talk, which was sponsored by the 
Massachusetts Colli nian, Mr. Lyona 
pictured the life of a reporter on a 
metropolitan journal. 

"A chief characteristic of ne 
paper life," he said, "is the constant 
struggle against time. Everything 
must be written with one eye on the 
dead-line, often at top speed. A re- 
porter must be willing to drop every- 
thing at a moment's notice and sac 
rifice his personal plans to fill an un- 
expected assignment." 

Mr. Lyons illustrated the dramatic 
| side of a reporter's life with several 
stories drawn from his own experi- 
ence. He emphasized however, the 
fact that such incidents are rare and 
that most of the work is comparative- 
ly routine. 

"The most capable newspapermen 
that I have known," Mr. Lyons stat- 
ed, "have been largely men without a

Tells of Work 

Secretary To College And President 
Explains Hia Job And His View 
Of Future Development of College 

In response to a question by a Col- 
legian reporter yesterday, in regard 
to the progress of the College in the 
next five years and whether or not 
the advancement will compare with 
that of the last five years, Secretary 
Robert D. Hawley replied "I am ex- 
ceedingly optimistic. Doctor Thatcher 
felt that his administration had been 
primarily one of consolidation and in 
which the solution of many difficult 
problems on relationship had been 
worked out. He prophesied a develop- 
ment of the College in the years just 
ahead limited only by financial sup- 
port. The construction of our new 
library and dormitory will be a great 
stimulus to further development which 
I feel sure will come under the lead- 
ership of our new President whose 
ability and aggressive spirit have al- 
ready been abundantly demonstrated." 

Robert I). Hawley, a graduate of 
Massachusetts State in 1918, has 
served as Secretary of the College for 
more than eight years and has had 
many interesting experiences in the 
varied duties of his office. 

Speaking of the nature of his work. 
Secretary Hawley remarked: "I have 
held this office for eight years and 
the work involves a great variety of 
duties which may be one reason why 
I enjoy it so much. In the first place 
the Secretary is responsible for keep- 
ing the official records of the College. 
This includes the records of the Fac- 
ulty, and of the Board of Trustees, 
together with the several committees 
of each. Much of my time is spent 
in attendance at meetings of these 
various groups and in recording ac- 
tions taken by them. 

"The preparation of several college 
programs and schedules fall to my 
lot, for example, the arrangement of 
convocation and chapel speakers. Un- 
der the system of centralized control 
in this State many of our activities 
have to clear through the Commis- 
sion of Administration and Finance in 
Boston. The Secretary handles the 
negotiations for some of these such 
as printing, personnel appointments 
and travel out of the State."

An imaginary interview with the 
monarch of the "chosen many": "I 
regret that I have only one month to 
give to our great institution." Also 
the Queen: "Until now, I never real- 
ized how popular I was." 

On Friday, December 8, forty men 
reported to Coach Lorin Ball to try 
out for basketball. Of the group, 
three are veterans of last year's team, 
Edward Uhlman, Richard Danaher, 
and Philip Craig, the latter being 
elected captain of this year's team. 
Every man that comes out will be 
given a chance to play on a team as 
Coach Ball intends to run a compet- 
itive series between teams.

We have put under the editorial caption quotations on a few of the 
numerous problems of the modern world extracted from as many magazines. 
We have tried to arrange them and to include in the following quotations 
the essential elements of the articles from which they are taken so that they 
reveal the direction in which our century is developing and in which our 

people are moving. 

"The Dice of God" 
"The dice of God are loaded", said Emerson and by this he meant that 
chance had little to say in the motivation of our lives, of our world, and of 
our minds. There is no free will was a doctrine the determinist and science 
added to this idea of Emerson, and our world as Laplace said was but the 
result of everything that had happened in the past. Nothing was chance; 
everything was certain and through the law of cause and effects predeter- 
mined Today, the old arrogant science is doubting; it is uncertain of the idea 
that chance has no influence on our destinies. The following quotation taken 
from an article entitled Science's New Certainty by G. W. Gray in the 
Christmas Scribncrs reveals this doubt. "This then is science's new certainty. 
The uncanny regularity of this restriction, this certainty of uncertainty, 
gives Heisenberg's principle (the uncertainty of position multiplied by the 
uncertainty of velocity always gives the same numerical value) the appear- 
ance of law in our present view of the universe. It says that in the world of 
the atom we can never know more than half the facts. For the other half 
we must depend on the law of probability." "Uncertainty reigns, and whether 
the universe is a world of fortuitous atoms or a world of freewill, it cannot 
be described in its fundamental aspects as a world of casuality." 

"The Future of Religion" 
As science has changed its view of freewill and conceived of the possi- 
bility of chance, so too religion has undergone a shift in viewpoint. The 
leaders of religious thought because of what history has taught and of what 
science has demonstrated have come to realize the transitoriness of the re- 
ligious institutions and of the permanency of the ideas back of all religions. 
The following article written by a prominent Catholic Priest, the Abbe Ernest 
Dimnet in Scribner's under the title, The Future of Religion reveals the 
dying out of the old ideas. "To conclude, there have been in the past and 
there will no doubt be in the future innumerable religious transformations 
which, however, will be in the line of the legitimate development and will 

never affect the essence of Christianity As for the 'Future of religion', i 

that is to say of the religious feeling, to worry about it is as unnecessary as , 
to worry about the future of poetry or the future of love. The modes of 
poetry and the 'climates' of love may vary indefinitely but their human 
scources remain what they have always been . . . What is meant is the future 
of institutional religions, and the least effort at analysis shows that they are 
only the garment of an instinct as primitive as life itself." 

In his article on religion, the Abbe Dimnet goes on to say, "As a matter of 
fact religion, true religion, has always belonged to a minority; the study even 
of the thirteenth century leaves no doubt of that and people who repeat with- 
out much conviction, that it takes a talent to be religious express a profound 
truth. Religion like poetry belongs to the humblest and the least gifted, but 
it does require a talent to give them noticeable form." So, also, in education 
as people move away from a conception that everyone can be religious so 
• they are leaving behind the idea that everyone can be educated and that 
everyone deserves to be educated. James Truslow Adams in a symposium, 
"The Trouble With The Colleges" in the Forum Magazine has this to say: 
"It may be merely one of the symposiums of a changing age, but the Ameri- 
can educational field seems to me to be one of almost complete confusion. We 
build feverishly a vast apparatus for turning out nobody knows just what. 
There are of course exceptions, perhaps many, but I speak of the whole 
system if one can use that word as whole. The exceptional man, as Mr. 
Leach says, gets something out of college, but we do not need to support 
fifteen hundred colleges to afford facilities for the few exceptional men." 
Again, on the same subject and in the same symposium, President Irving 
Maurer of Beloit College says, "What we need is to have a greater ability 
on the part of the colleges to choose worthy material and then a program 
which will see that in every sense it is mentally and spiritually assimilated 
and awakened." 

The Trend of Our Times 
What do these quotations reveal about the trend of our times? They 
reveal several things, first that science has lost its certainty of certainty and 
is groping and that this groping may mean the development of a less mechan- 
istic conception of the universe vich its attendant enrichment through the 
addition of and adherence to religious ideas. Secondly, that religion itself 
has come to recognize the transitoriness of the outward form, that Carlyle's 
clothes" have new fashions every year while the truths under the "clothes" 
remain eternally the same. Thirdly, that this new conception of science and 
religion is bringing about a richer and more thorough democracy through 
purgation, for example of the theory that everyone could be educated, of the 
many ideas that were and are superficial. Yet, these three aspects of the 
new times may appear hopeful, too hopeful, but to those who know life there 
comes the realization that this trend is but another movement in the "eternal 
pendulum" between extremes of thought. The pendulum, if we are to judge 
by these quotations, is swinging away from an arrogant materialism to its 
opposite, a pure idealism. We are now in an age which represents a place 
slightly removed from the mechanism and far removed form idealism. 

State's own Gracie Allen: Of 
course I didn't make the list in Zoo. 
I know all about "bugs." For two 
years in succession, I had Phi Kappa 
Phi boy friends. 

That library appellation, "Never 
taken out," might be applied equally 
well to our bookish girls. 

What is this story about students in 
a certain "gut" course crawling out 
the back door after class has started? 

The senior floriculture group will 
be engaged in travelling Thursday 
afternoon and all day Friday, Decem- 
ber 14 and 15. On Thursday, under 
the direction of Professor Rollin H. 
Barrett, the class will visit the green- 
house establishments in the valley to 
study business methods as part of 
their work in the business manage- 
ment course. 

On Friday the class will visit in 
the order named, the greenhouse 
range of M. Aitken in Agawam, Mass., 
Spaulding Brothers in Suffield, Conn., 
Connecticut State College Experiment 
Station at Storrs, Conn., from there 
to Hartford to visit the retail stores 
and view Christmas displays of plants 
and flowers and then to Cromwell, 
Conn., to the range of A. N. Pierson. 

This trip is to be made under the 
guidance of Professor S. Church Hub- 
bard to study the commercial growing 
of Christmas plants and arrangements 
in retail stores. 

And how about the frosh. who went 
up to the Apiary to see the baboons? 

Our Chem prof inaugurated the wet 
parade by advising his Qualitative 
class that he preferred a smiling 
countenance to a sober one. 

The boys in the A. T. G. house are 
spending more evenings at home due 
to the addition of a combination radio,

What freshman instructor has been 
propositioning students?

to cub reporters, freshman theme 
writers, and the poetically-minded: 
"Fool, look in thy own heart and 
write." Accordingly a few more

With the first call for candidates 
already issued and answered, Coach 
"Red" Ball's plans for the 1934 ice 
sextet are centered around eight 
pucksters who saw plenty of action 
last year and who are expected to 
form the basis of the new team. 
Ambrose McGuckian, a letterman, who 
attended to the rejection of oppon- 
ents' attempts at scores last year, 
seems slated for the net position 
again this year. The offense will have 
Russ Snow, Ralph Henry, Fred Cor- 
coran, and Bill Brown as the out- 
standing candidates. These men were 
all tested under fire on last season's 
squad and weathered the ordeal satis- 
factorily. Snow will seek center posi- 
tion while the battle for the two wing 
positions will be a tossup among the 
other three. 

Roger Blackburn's experience will 
land him right defense while Ben 
Wihry, a veteran, and Fred Murphy, 
a sophomore who exhibited a fine 
brand of hockey as a member of the 

Russell L. Snow 

Captain of 1934 Hockey Team 

freshman team, will fight for the de- 
fense post on the left. 

Nine games are scheduled for this 
year — seven away and two, the Mid- 
dlebury and Northeastern games, at 
home. The schedule opens January 5 
with Brown at Providence. Last year 
the Bears eked out the decision in an 
overtime period, 4 to 3. On January 
27 the squad will depart for West 
Point to tussle with the Cadets after 
a lapse of one year. Two years ago 
the Cadets were routed by the State 
pucksters, 5 to 2. 

The remaining teams on the sched- 
ule were all played by the Stateers 
who tucked the last five games of the

Eighteen members of the varsity 
soccer team were awarded letters for 
the 1933 season it was announced by 
the committee on intercollegiate ath- 
letics last Monday. Seven seniors, 
exclusive of the manager, six juniors, 
and four sophomores, comprise those 
who are honored with the State insig- 

Following is the list of those award- 
ed letters: Captain Cowing, Bowler, 
Jackson, Kozlowski, Landsman, Mac- 
kimmie, Talbot, Blackburn, Clark, 
George Hunter, Norris, Wood, Becker, 
Davidson, Haselhuhn, Sweinberger, 
and Manager Cox. 

At a recent meeting of these men, 
James Blackburn was elected captain 
of the next year's eleven and Harlow 
Hermanson manager. Blackburn, who 
will have played his third season next 
year, never played organized soccer 
before coming to State. His play has 
been outstanding all this season, par- 
ticularly in the Amherst game. His 
proficiency in athletics does not cease 
with soccer for he plays basketball, 
runs cross-country well enough to 
have earned numerals in these in his 
freshman year. 

Amherst, Dartmouth, and Trinity 
get three positions each on State's 
all-opponent soccer team as announced 
by Coach Larry Briggs. The remain- 
ing two positions are filled by men 
from Worcester Tech and Wesleyan.

Walter Stepat, a junior, has been 
elected captain of the Maroon har- 
riers for next year, according to the 
announcement that was released to 
the papers last Thursday. Walt cer- 
tainly deserves the honor for he led 
the runners in individual honors all 
season in the dual meets, winning 
four firsts and tying for the winning 
place in the other with Gregory of 
Williams. Caird will be missing next 
year, but Walt's other running mate 
during the last season, namely, Ray 
Proctor, a sophomore, will be back. 
And if Murray, Gillette, and Pol- 
hemus report next fall — along with 
Dunker, Bishop, Proctor, and Hub- 
bard — well, "Derb" has dreams! 

Forty-six men reported for the first 
basketball practice at Worcester 
Tech. Coach Bigler cut this number 
down to twenty five after the first 
week of practice. Incidently, they've 
several veterans back, led by War- 
wick, Stafford, and Norton, all 
seniors, besides the members from 
the second-string of last year and the 
freshman team of a year ago. 


Co-el} Sports 

A badminton tournament has been 
held in the sophomore girls' three 
physical education classes. The semi- 
finalists in each class were: Class A, 
Margaret Hutchinson and Francine 
Smith; Class B, Phyllis Macintosh and 
Louise Govone; Class C, Lois Crab- 
tree and Marion Paulding. Francine 
Smith, Louise Govone, and Lois 
Crabtree, winners in the semi-finals, 
played off the finals so that Louise 
Govone defeated first Lois Crabtree, 
and triumphed in the finals by de- 
feating "Fran" Smith by a score of 

Louise Govone, the winner of the 
sophomore tournament invites any 
junior or senior girl to challenge her 
in an upperclass girls' tournament. 
If there is no challenge from the 
junior or senior girls, Louise Govone 
will remain the undisputed co-ed bad 
minton champion. 

Post-season howls are going up all 
over the country, as anguished alumni 
gaze upon the records which their 
Alma Mater's grid representatives 
compiled during the last season. First 
it was the Big Green of Dartmouth 
who yelled so long and loud after the 
Chicago whitewashing that Jack 
Cannell resigned as head coach. Then 
Anderson went out and Layden in at 
Notre Dame. Now the Bulldogs of 
Yale are barking for a complete re- 
vision of affairs at New Haven. They 
want to break with tradition and 
bring in a non-graduate coach as 
Princeton did this last year. Little, 
coach at Columbia and moulder of the 
East's Rose Bowl representative, and 
Kipke, guider of Michigan's Big Ten 
champions, are the most prominent 
men mentioned for the position. 

Then there were rumblings from 
Maine to the tune that twelve of the 
eighteen lettermen at Bowdoin voted 
recently that Bowser, coach of the 
Polar Bear gridsters, was inefficient 
and should be replaced. Yet accord- 
ing to an article in last Sunday's 
Boston Bost, Bowser was given a vote 
of confidence by the varsity men and 
the Athletic Council decided to rec- 
ommend to the college trustees that 
Bowser's contract be renewed for 
three years. Thus it seems likely that 
the Polar Bears will have the same 
mentor when they oppose the Maroon 
forces of State at Brunswick next 

Bill Schlaefer '35, of Englewood, 
New Jersey, has been appointed man- 
ager of the cross-country team of 
1934. He will succeed Phillip Rob- 
inson '35 of Revere who managed the 
harriers' affairs during the last sea-

Davis, K.S. 


Opening a difficult and ambitious 
basketball schedule, Coach Mel 
Taube's Maroon and White quintet 
will meet the attack of a fast Middle- 
bury five here on January 11. The 
Middlebury team had a successful 
season last year in spite of the fact 
that it bowed to the Massachusetts 
State court combine 48-31. On Jan. 
15 the Taubemen will journey to 
Storrs to face a mediocre Conn. State 
five which was defeated here last 
season 22-19 by a Maroon and White 
team off its regular form. On Jan. 
19 the State warriors will attempt to 
avenge the football team's defeat 
when it meets a veteran Amherst 
combine at Amherst. Last year the 
town championship was decided in a 
snappy, overtime game, 40-37, at 
Pratt Gymnasium. On Jan. 22, Coach 
Taube's hoopsters will play in Wil- 
liamstown against a renowned Wil- 
liams five who defeated Massachusetts 
State last season, 52-46, in a hard 
and furious contest. 

The Massachusetts State rooters 
will have their next chance to see 
Coach Taube's band of athletes in ac- 
tion on their home floor on Feb. 10 
when the Maroon and White will meet 
Rhode Island State, a newcomer to 
the basketball lineup. On Feb. 14 
Amherst will come over to the M. S. 
C. campus for a return game. On 
Feb. 16 the Massachusetts State 
hoopsters will again play at home, 
this time with New Hampshire as an 
opponent. Last season the Wildcats 
downed the Maroon and White to the 
tune of 46-31. With just one day's 
rest, the Taubemen will go to Prov- 
idence on Feb. 17 to meet the Brown 
University quintet for the first time. 
Returning to their home court on Feb. 
23, the State combine will attempt to 
stop the Pratt Institute team from 
Brooklyn. This is the first game with 
the out-of-state combine but accord- 
ing to all reports the contest prom- 
ises to be a battle between two good 
quintets. On the next night, Feb. 24, 
the Massachusetts State five will face 
a strong Wesleyan five, another new- 
comer, in Middletown, Conn. 

The Tufts College hoopsters will be 
the next opponents when they will be 
met by the Taubmen at Medford on 
the night of Feb. 28. In last year's 
game the Medford quintet defeated 
the Maroon and White team by the 
score of 36-27. The season will be 
closed on March 3, when the Massa- 
chusetts State five will journey to 
Worcester to meet the Worcester 
Tech aggregation. 

The complete schedule, as compiled 
by Manager Arthur Merrill, is as 
follows : 


Coach Mel Taube, Massachusetts 
State College basketball mentor, has 
been drilling the Maroon and White

fundamentals. Nearly every practise 
has been used to explain the vurious 
elementary points of the style of bas- 
ketball played at Massachusetts State 
td the newcomers. The players have 
not been drilled too extensively be- 
cause every man must round into 
shape slowly, but after the Christmas 
holidays, Coach Taube will assemble 
the court quintet and attempt to de- 
velop a smooth, powerful combination 
for the opening tilt with Middlebury. 

The position of center, left open 
by the graduation of Ed Fawcett last 
June, is being hotly contested for by 
Davis, a junior, Zielinski, Allen, and 
McConchie, a star member of last 
year's freshman team. Howie Slev-

tion last season is making a bid for 
a berth at guard. The main offense

hard enough then, it never will be! 


Under the direction of Coach Larry 
Briggs and Instructors Pete Nietup- 
ski, Victor Pineo, and Louis Haizman, 
wrestling and boxing classes have 
been started in the Physical Educa- 
tion Building. While no definite 
schedule of meetings has been ar- 
ranged yet, there will be a meeting 
Tusday, December 12, at which time 
definite plans will be formulated. 
No schedule of meets ha* been ar- 
ranged and the work dont will be 
confined to instruction and practice 
with the possibility of an exhibition 
being held later in the winter. 

This year there seems to be an un- 
usually large amount of interest in 
these sports, nearly forty having 
signed up for boxing and forty-five 
for wrestling. A number of football 
men have come out and the other 
material looks favorable. Consider- 
ing the increase of interest and the 
outstanding material, the future of 
boxing and wrestling at State looks 
more promising. If the present can- 
didates can be developed and a strong 
team can be formed, the possibilities 
of re-organizing wrestling and box- 
ing so that outside competition may 
be had will be greatly increased.

the last one to want any lengthy 
eulogy at this service. But it may be 
comforting to express a few of the 
many thoughts which crowd upon us 
What a place Dr. Thatcher had 
made for himself in many fields! In 
his home-we may not intrude. But 
we know that his love and affection 
•rrew with the passing years so that 
these recent months, with lesser pub- 
lic duties, were among the choicest in 
his home life. Those who knew him 
best loved him most. 

His place in the educational world 
is evidenced by the fact of his con- 
nection in some important position

universities stretching across the con-

By erecting a large Christmas tree 
on the edge of the College Pond, 
President Hugh P. Baker has pro- 
duced not only a subject of much dis- 
cussion on the Massachusetts State- 
College campus during the past week, 
but a new custom. 

In originating this novelty, Presi-

the tree to sing Christmas carols M 
a means to bind the students in a 
closer feeling for Massachusetts State 


It is the first time in the history 
of the institution that a Christmas 
tree has been erected on the State- 
campus and the administration is en- 
deavoring to insure the future popu- 
larity of the experiment with the 
student body. The tentative plan:, 
are: that following the religious con- 
ference in Bowker Auditorium on 
Sunday evening, where the College 
Glee Club will render several Christ- 
mas songs, the audience will adjourn 
to the Christmas tree and Christmas

days were too short, and his strength 
too small for all he sought to accom- 

In religion he had a very definite 
place. His quiet faith, his strong 
sense of duty, and his lavish gener- 
osity made him a loyal follower of 
the Christ. 

In all these fields Dr. Thatcher had 
made a large place for himself. But 
I like to think that his largest place 
was in the realm of friendship. The 
largest place he filled was in the 
hearts of his many, many friends. He 
was so humble and gentle that he was 
most approachable. He was so frank 
and genuine that he commanded uni- 
versal respect; He was so enthusi- 
astic that people delighted to follow 
him ; His sense of duty was so strong 
that we were shamed and rebuked by 
it; He gave himself so generously that 
we loved him.

Christmas Dance 
Next Tuesday Eve 

Appearing for the first time this 
year on the campus of Massachusctt.- 
State College, the Lord Jeff Serenad- 
es will play for the Christmas In- 
formal which will be held in the Drill 
Hall on Tuesday, December 19 th 
from 8:00 to 12:00 o'clock. The 
price will be $.50 per couple or .40 

The Lord Jeff Serenaders were 
the only college orchestra in the coun- 
try permitted to a "battle of music" 
with Guy Lombardo and his Koyal 
Canadians. Not only have they had 
.-uccesst'ul engagements in Paris, Ber- 
muda, Lake George and the White 
Mountains, but they have played at 
Yale, Harvard, Wesleyan, Williams, 
Dartmouth, Smith and Mount Hol- 
yoke. When they appear at the 
Christmas informal, they will present 
a ten piece orchestra. 

Under the direction of the inform- 
al committee which is headed by 
"Babe" Bigelow, the informal is held 
in celebration of the Christmas .spirit. 
A large crowd is expected to attend 
and join in the holiday merriment. 
Because of the nearness to the Christ- 
mas vacation, and because of notable 
music of the Lord Jeff Serenaders, 
the dance is expected to be a not- 
able occasion. The Informal Com- 
•mittee invites everyone to come and 
listen to a good band and to join in 
spreading the Christmas spirit.

speed required. The color is applied 
to new plaster on the wall of some 
building, and the painter must com- 
plete a certain section of his picture 
each day in order that the junctures 
where he left off on one day and be- 
gan the next will not be conspicuous 
to the beholder. 

Of Rivera's paintings, Royal Cor- 
tissoz of the New York Trihune says, 
"It is as an interpreter of the genius 
of his native land that Rivera justi- 
fies the wide repute that is his. It is 
impossible to survey his things with- 
out being touched by the message they 
convey, half humanitarian, half pic- 

Rivera himself is forty-five years of 
age, "a large and genial man" more 
than six feet tall," who stoped weigh- 
ing himself after he tipped the scales 
at 220 pounds." As a young man he 
played prominent parts in the many 
revolutions in Mexico, and has been 
connected with the Communist move- 
ment in Russia.

student cuts over the number of ab- 
sences allowed he immediately condi- 
tions that course in which he has over 
cut and will be required to present ex- 
tra work in this subject at the time 
of his appearance for the condi- 
tional examination." Thus in 1900 
those students who were "chronic 
cutters" were harshly punished. 

The students caught cribbing in 
those days were summoned before the 
faculty. In 1900 it was up to the 
faculty members to mete out the pen- 
alties to the wayward students for the 
Honor Council had not then come up- 
on the scene. 

Students entering the college had 
to sign a pledge in which they prom- 
ised to abstain from all "hazing" and 
from all acts involving defacement of 
the college buildings or any other 
property of the college. In subse- 
quent editions of the rule book no 
mention is made of the pledge so we 
are led to believe that this entrance 
requirement was removed soon after

Every effort will be made to keep this

shrubs and trees will be protected 
and planted throughout." 

The roads and highways leading 
into the Muscle Shoals area will be 
beautified by the planting of trees 
and shrubs, shaping of ditches, widen 
ing of roadside berms and, as fas as 
possible, removal of signs. 

"Due to the fact that there is a 
population of more than 25,000 peo- 
ple in Florence, Sheffield and Tus- 
cumbia already," Mr. Brewster said, 
"it is believed desirable and nee 
sary to build an airport. As soon as 
a desirable site is selected and ap- 
proved it is likely that work will be- 
fia on the port. It is expected the 
airport will be approximately 200 
acres in extent." 

Mr. Brewster said he also conteni 
plated the establishment of a small 
game breeding refuge at nitrate plant 
No. 1. leaving the area in its present 
wild condition as far as possible.

even more activities now than when 
he was a leader in many organiza- 
tions as a student at Massachusetts 
State for he continued "The Secre- 
tary of the College is in charge of 
the clerical service on the campus. 
He edits and publishes what has been 
successively the M. A, C. Bulletin, 
M. S. C Bulletin, and beginning in 
19.: 1, the State College Bulletin. This 
is a series of eight publications a 
year including the College Catalogue, 
the Annual report, und various other 
announcements and reports. Each 
year I devote a month or two to the 
preparation of the College Budget." 

Secretary Hawley considers the 
most important responsibility of the 
office is to render assistance to the 
President in a great complication of 
his duties. Few people appreciate, I 
think, what great and varied respon- 
sibilities are carried by the chief ex- 
ecutive of a college like ours, with its 
problems of extension service, re- 
search, State ai.d Federal relation- 
ships, and others in addition to those 
usually found in the endowed college." 
In reply to a query concerning the 
possibility of Massachusetts State 
College developing into a university, 
Secretary Hawley remarked. "I can 
only heartily endorse President Bak- 
er's inaugural statement on this 
point. Ultimately this college will be, 
I believe, what the people of the 
State want it to be. It is their col- 
lege ami not that of the administra- 
tion or the faculty or any other small 
group. Our responsibility is to make 
it just as effective as possible in its 
present scope."

is the appropriation of $9,000 for the 
complete restoration of the Stock-

the desire of the administration to 
preserve old landmarks of the college. 

In an interview recently regarding 
the commencement of work on the 
new library and the men's dormitory, 
two projects also resulting from Fed- 
eral appropriations, Secetary Hawley 
announced that the plans were still 
in the hands of the State Commission 
and action on the actual bidding would 
not begin for a few weeks. 

All students wishing to work at the 
college on these projects during the 
Christmas vacation, are requested to 
sign application cards at the office of 
Mr. Pray in the Town Hall, Amherst. 
According to the latest report from 
the office of Mr. Pray, over 125 stu- 
dents from Massachusetts State Col-

lege on Feb. 1, and was inaugurated 
on October 6 in one of the most col- 
orful ceremonies ever witnessed on 
this campus. More than seventy 
State and College dignitaries attend- 
ed the inauguration ceremonies. 

While students were home for the 
summer vacation, the College lost one 
of its most loved and respected fig- 
ures in the death on August 11, of 
Professor Charles H. Patterson, head 
of the department of languages and 
literature. What upperclassman does 
not remember him from Sophomore 
English. It is a tribute to the genius 
of the man that his sophomore course 
in English is still familiar to all stu- 
dents as "Pat's English". 

To succeed Professor Patterson, As- 
sociate Professor Frank Prentice 
Rand was appointed acting head of 
the English department. In addition, 
Associate Professor Rand and Assist- 
ant Professors Prince in English, 
Moore in mathematics and Torrey in 
botany were promoted to full profes- 
sorships. To replace several vacancies 
and to take care of the increased 
teaching burden, seven new instruc- 
tors were added to the staff. 

Of most recent occurrence was the 
sudden passing of Dr. Roscoe W. 
Thatcher, former president of this 
college from 1927 to 1932, who had 
served as research professor in chem- 
istry since resigning the presidency. 
His passing was a distinct loss to 
Massachusetts State College.

ester system was inaugurated to re- 
place the term system under which 
the college had been operating for 
the last sixteen years. This, of course 
necessitated significant changes in 
courses which have tended toward a 
broader education. 

Of particular importance is the re- 
cent granting to the college of a new 
dormitory and a new library, obtained 
under the funds from the Federal 
Public Works Administration. The 
granting of these two buildings, both 
of which are much needed, followed 
more than a year's agitation on the 
part of administration, the Board of 
Trustees, and the Alumni. 

And last but not least, Freshman 
rules, discard in 1932, were brought 
back again this semester after the 
noticeable lapse in class spirit on the 
part of the incoming freshman last

at the Innsbruck University in Aus- 
tria, remaining there until 1911. 

After his return from Europe Fa- 
ther Ahem was connected with th • 
faculty of Canisius College serving 
as president for four years. He ha^ 
also served on the faculty of Boston 
University, Holy Cross, and St. Jo- 
seph's College. Since 1926, he has 
headed the department of chemistry 
and geology at Weston College which 
is the Jesuit house of studies for the 
New England Province. 

Father Ahern has lectured exten- 
sively on scientific and religious sub- 
jects. He is one of the consulting 
editors of the revised editions of the 
Catholic Encyclopedia which is to be 
published soon. He is a fellow of 
the American Association for the Ad-

Geological Society and a member of 
the American Chemical Socity. 

By appointment of Cardinal O'Con-

college education. In this regard 1

greatest journalists of recent times," 
Mr. Lyons related several stories 
about that brilliant man in connection 
with the New York Times. "Several 
years ago at the time of the general 
interest in Egyptology and King Tut- 
ankhamen in particular, photographs 
came from Egypt containing hiero- 
glyphic inscriptions. Van Anda im- 
mediately translated them and scored 
a great success for the Times." 

A very interesting part of his work, 
Mr. Lyons said, was the opportunity 
of meeting many types of people. 
Among many others, he has inter- 
viewed Father Coughlin of Detroit 
and Mary Garden, the famous primma 
donna. Interviews with such indi- 
viduals usually throw new light on 
their characters.

President Addresses Group at Meet- 
ing of American Association for 
the Advancement of Science 
During Christmas Vacation 

During the vacation, President and 
Mrs. Hugh P. ctaker attended the con- 
vention in Boston of the American 
Association for the Advancement of 
Science and President Baker delivered a 
thirty-minute talk at a symposium of 
engineers and agriculturalists at Massa- 
chusetts Institute of Technology on 
Dec. 30. President and Mrs. Baker were 
the guests at the home of Dean Bush of 
the Massachusetts Institute of Tech- 
nology and attended a dinner given by 
President Compton of M.I.T. with 
Secretary of Agriculture Wallace as the 
guest of honor. 

President Baker, in opening his talk 
on "The Engineer and Land Use in 
Massachusetts," remarked: "The inter- 
est and concern of the land grant colleges 
in engineering began with the organiza- 
tion of these colleges following the pas- 
sage of the Morril Act of 18d2. It was 
specifically provided in this act that

Comedy Staged by Roister Doisters

13 of last year, was attended by approxi- 
mately 12(H) people. This is the first 
musical comedy to l>e presented on this 
> ainpus since 1910. 

There were several outstanding dance 
Bmnbera in the show, done by the colorful, 
collegiate chorus. Impersonations of pro- 
lessors and well-known students were 

Many of the songs used in this comedy 
ire adaptable for college singing. Others 
will remain as snatches of a memorable 
evening. The songs heard were written 
by \V. Grant Dunham, David Cosgriff, 
and Edward Law; the words were the 
combined efforts of Thurl D. Brown, 
Bernice Dolan, Donald Chase, Fred 
Nwbett, and \V. Grant Dunham. 

Much of the credit for tha succcs- of 
the show should be given to Warren 
.Suutfnvorth, the director, and to Kdgar 
Sorton, who had charge of the orchest ra- 
tions. Other students who aided in the 
production were Alexander Lucey, Mar- 
guerite Ford, and Shirley McCarthy. 

Business Board 

Has Competition 

Candidates for Business Department 

of Massachusetts Collegian to 

Report This Afternoon 

Competition for election to the btisi 
MM board of the Massachusetts Collegian 
will begin this afternoon at 4 p.m. in the 
Collegian office. The competition is open 
to members of the three lower classes and 
will last until the end of the semester. 
All candidates should report to Edward 
J. Talbot, Business Manager. 

Members of the business board have 
control of the circulation, advertising, 
mailing, distribution, and accounting of 
the paper. By supplying students with 
an acquaintance of the working on a small 
scale of an actual business concern, mem- 
bership on the board furnishes an oppor- 
tunity to gain experience in business that 
often proves valuable. 

Competition will consist of securing 
advertising, study of the Collegian meth- 
ods of circulation, mailing, priming and 
the like, and practice in mailing, filing 
subscription cards, and handling the ad- 
vertising. There is room on the business 
l>oard of the Collegian for five students. 
Candidates will also have an opportunity 
to become acquainted with the methods 
of finance emp loyed in supporting the 
Collegian, the sources of revenue, and the 
DOOl of printing.

"There's Always Juliet," a quiet 
comedy written by John Van Druteu, has 
been selected by the Roister Doisters for 
their spring production. A phenomenal 
success in New Vork a few years ago when 
the leads were played by Herbert Marsh- 
all and Edna Best, the play is one which 
requires a smaller cast than has been 
used in most of the productions at this 
college. However, in order to create more 
parts and to give significance to the 
comedy, two or three atmospheric pre- 
faces from Romeo and Juliet will be in- 
corporated into the play. It is the hope 
of the management that it will be possible 
to take this play off campus. 

Last year, during the winter term, the 
Roister Doisters gave David Manners' 
ever-popular play, "Peg O* My Heart." 
Shirley McCarthy took the lead role of 
Peg, supported by a cast including 
Warren Southworth as Jerry, and Thurl 
Brown as Montgomery Hawks, a solicitor. 
"The drama," said Professor W. E. 
Prince, in his review of "Peg 0' My 
Heart," "is concerned with Peg, a j>oor 
Irish girl of New York, who becomes an 
heiress through the death of her uncle and 
w ho is sent to England to l>e reared in an 
aristocratic environment by an aristo- 
cratic aunt. In these new surroundings, 
Peg is like a fish out of water; but through 
her intelligence, good sense and wit, Peg 
wins her way, and incidentally a worth 
while husband in the person of Jerry, 
the Englishman, who appreciates Peg's 
quality from his first meeting with her." 

In June, the .society presented Shak. 
pcare's piny, "As You Like It," in the 
ravine in a natural setting. Rain, the 
night of the first |>erformance marred the 
production of the play to a certain ex- 
tent. Shirley McCarthy again had the 
lead role, that of Rosalind. 

The try-outs for "There's Always 
Juliet," will be held on Monday evening, 
January 8 at 8 o'clock in the Memorial

courses of Massachusetts State College 
opened January 12, \\m. These short 
courses, which have been maintained by 
the college for over twenty years, offer 
instruction in floriculture, poultry raising, 
greenkeeping, bacteriology, forestry, and 
dairying from Jan. 2 to March 10. This 
\ear twelve courses are catalogued. 

The enrollment whib- not complete, is 
smaller this year than last. The most 
popular course is peenkeeping course 
which baa attained nationwide promin-

ten other students are registered for the 
eleven weeks course. 

An important feature of this year's 
courses, according to Roland II. Verbeck 
the director of short courses, is the 
staggering of the poultry CQUreea ol

On December 17, 1933 Prof. Walter E 
Prince of the English department was the 
guest reader at a Christmas party given 
in the "Abbey" Center by the Y.W.C.A. 
His readings were preceded by several 
Christmas songs sung by Barbara Keck 
'37. Dorothy Nurmi '30 led the girls and 
faculty members present in the singing of 
Christmas carols. The social committee, 
headed by Lois Crabtree '30 was in 
charge of the party. Sophomore members 
of the committee are Marion Paulding, 
Majorie Whitney, Dorothy Nurmi, and 
Gertrude Vickery. Freshman members 
are Dorothy Donnelly, Ruth Kinsman, 
and Eleanor West.

Speaking of the fair sex . . . The Rhode

when a woman is both beautiful and good

American youth is imbued with the false belief that disrespect 
discourtesy, roughness, rudeness, and incivility are the marks of the 
true man and life true women. Courteous manners, polite and proper 
attend ii even College men and women believe, are not the marks of 
the ruggd kleal, American character. They do not realize that true 
manhood, true womanhood are not bold and rash. They do not realize 
Sat the man who brusquely snatches the letter from another . hand

uncivil That the public servant who answers your question in a 
brusque manner is tactless and disrespectful not a true man of charac- 
ter Our men and women do not realize that their idea of manners and 
of the world itself are false. As it is in the world, so it is on our own 

""Recently, we have seen and heard of numerous examples of dis- 
courtesy At the last convocation of 1933, the members of the student

other sororities is as follows: Sigma Beta

Phi Zeta 88 points. This standing has 
been computed under the new point

To get philosophical for a moment— 
on the one hand, there are those who are 
taking psychology, on the other hand- 
there are those who just can't take it! 


Unfortunately, one of the great faults of our American colleges and 
universities is tolerance. There have been and are critics condemning 
the faculties of collegiate institutions because of intolerance, and in 
certain respects these critics were and are correct. However we be- 
Ecve that the faculty members of modern colleges, as well as the stu- 
dents, possess a greater fault than intolerance, an over-abundant 

■"tS! tole^ance^of which we speak is not the kind that eliminates 
bigotry and academic hatred. This tolerance is not of that nature 
wheh allows other men to think and to ive as they desire. This 
quality or characteristic of the American college man and woman and 
the American college professor is detrimental to education. This 
tolerance is the tolerance of human weaknesses which can be corrected, 
the tolerance of faults and errors which result from a careless careless- 
ness from laziness, and an all too evident insincerity. 

There are numerous examples of this in any collegiate institution. 
The students are late for classes, day after day, and the tardiness is 
blamed on youthful vigor or perhaps youthful fatigue Errors are made 
ano the fault, men sav, is of irresponsible age not of the people who 
commit the errors. Editorials in college newspapers are either con- 
temkma ly conservative or conventionally radical. They too,^ ar e the 
cause of a malicious force known as youthful immaturity. Student 
acuvities, debating, dramatics, publications, and musical activities are 
no r in quahtv because college men and women will not give time and 
energy to the improvement of these activit es These activities are not 
we' done, crude and even at times unethical. The poor qualities are 
forgiven in the principles underlying the oft repeated s tatement of 
Sance, "Well, that was excellent for college students who had only 

'"^Xtne'lolenmc: of weakness is a blight on the characters of 
the college man and woman. These weaknesses are not inherent weak- 
nesses but weaknesses easily eliminated because they grow out of an 
elsy life a false view of the world. The inherent weaknesses of hu- 
man i y such as intellectual error, inability to think clearly, sanely, and 
o,m Jelely must be tolerated to a certain degree Are there remedies 
foTtheae weakness*? There are. Discipline, enforcement of co ege 
rue ami regulations, and no acceptance on the part of the college 
student and faculty groups of things half-done, and of things accom- 
plished insincerely will destroy this tolerance of weakness. 

Those freshmen certainly must know 
their women. We saw one of them escort- 
ing four co-eds "Abbeyward" the other 
night. Might have baen a date but it 
looked mighty like a parade to me!

Massachusetts State will enter a new 
athletic field on January 90, when the 
first team to represent the Maroon and 
White engages a Worcester Tech team in 
the State pool. Coach Joe Rogers, him- 
self a former aquatic star for the Engin- 
eers, has a squad of 14 men working out- 
and from this group he hopes to build up 
a winning combination. 

Three other meets are to be held by 
the Maroon swimmers. The second is 
with Trinity at Hartford on February 3; 
the third with Weslcyan at Middletown 
on February 20; while on the 28th 
Connecticut State sends its aquatic stars 
here. To meet these other colleges, 
Coach Rogers has four men around whom 
he expects to build his club. Bill Tirrell 
of South Weymouth, who took three first 
places in the recent interfraternity meet, 
will be used as an all-around man to fill 
in where most needed. A second likely 
point-winner is Dave Mountain, who 
specializes in the dives and who will also 
probably be on the relay team. The other 
two likely mainstays are Dick Brown and 
Arthur Merrill who will participate in 
the dashes and relay. 

Coach Rogers is none too optimistic 
over the expected showing of his club in 
its first year of intercollegiate competition, 
but he hopes to develop a team that will 
show well in some of the events on the 
schedule through the efforts of a few out- 
standing men. 

ing lineup for Massachusetts State were 
only four regular starters from last year, 
Captain Russ Snow at center, Pop Henry 
at left wing, Feddy Corcoran at right 
wing and Mac McGuckiaa at goal. Bill 
Brown, a letterman, at center, Al Burgess 
and Sweinberger composed the second 
forward line. The loss by graduation of 
Dick Hammond and Art Brown was leeea- 
ly noticed, the three defense men, Ben 
Wihry, Rog Blackburn, and Fred Mur- 
phy, being unable to stop the experi- 
enced Brown skaters consistently. Coach 
Ball remarked after the game that he 
believed the Brown skaters hurled more 
shots at Goalie McGuckian than did 
all of State's opponents last year 

In addition to the fine play of its for- 
ward lines, the defense of the Brown team 
was so effective that the State skaters did 
not get free for more than seven shots at 
the Brown goalie.

Paul Sch. ilt ner, guard on two Maroon 
elevens, ha* been elected taptain ot the 
State grid forces for the 1034 Season. 
Although he never played toot ball while 

in high school and has been handicapped 

by lack of weight in his efforts on tin- 
State gridiron, Paid has been a mainstay 
in the Massachusetts line, and we wish 
both him and all his I dlowers a successful 
season in 1034. 

As a fitting reward for his outstanding 
work as a Maroon athlete, Louis Bush, 
retiring captain of the Slate eleven, re- 
ceived the Allan Leon Pond medal at tin- 
last convocation. This award is made 
annually in memory of Allan Leon Pond 
of the class of 1020, a World War veteran 
and all-around athlete, who died Feb.

With the fust meet, the K. of C. meet, 

scheduled for January 27, the Massachu- 
setts State College track ■quad has 

started regular practice. The relay team 
had been working out rather informally 
for several weeks before Christmas vaca 
tion, but the regular team practice has 
just been started. 

For the present emphasis will be placed 
Ofl the selection and improvement of the 
relay team. Ot last year's team only one 
member is available this year and the 
rest of the team must Ik- made up of men 

who have very little experience. Glenn 

Shaw, member of the 1 93.*i relay team, 
has beefl showing up well in practice, and, 
with Kerr, Battles, Stepat, Greenwood, 
Parker, and Potter competing for the 
three other places on the team, a last 
quartet of the Maroon and White should 
be developed. 

The prospects for a successful 
season this year are very indefinite al the 
present time. Few veterans and final 
examinations coining in January provide 
severe handicaps. A large number have 
reported for practice and while most are 
inexperienced, the showing so far of these 
men lia-. lieen very promising. If this 
material improves and develops as e\ 
pa rt ed the 10^14 edition of the State 
track team should fair quite well at the 
hands of its compel itors. 

The varsity schedule this year is made 
up of three dual meets and three inter- 
collegiate contests, in two of which the 
State relay team alone will compet e. 
Dual meets will be held with BeetOU 
University, Worcester Tech, and Conn. 
State. The quartet of speedsters will 
perform in the K. of (\, 15. A. A., and the 
University Club meets in Boston. In 
the University Club meet several track- 
siers will be entered as well as the relay 

Freshman track has also been started. 
An interclass meet will be held later, 
and two other meetings with Stockbridge 
and Amherst freshmen will provide fur- 
ther competition for the first year men.

of agriculture and the mechanic arts." 

Explaining the part of the land grant 
colleges in engineering, President Biker 

states: "As far as MatMfhtltfttt is con- 
cerned, in the organisation of the State 
College at Amherst, and for reasons which 
apparently the founders found wise, 
mechanic arts were not included in the 
organic set-up of the institution and 
Federal funds received for this particular 
purpose by Massachusetts have through 

the years gone to the Massachusetts 
Institute of Technology. This has not 
meant that with the development of the 
State College at Amherst engineering in 
its different phases has not been taught." 

The administrative head of Massachu- 
setts State College divided his talk into 
three sections: (1) the Land Grant 
Colleges and Engineering, (2) History in 
Massachusetts Repeats Itself in Empha- 
sizing the Importance of the Application 
of Engineering to the Problems of Effec- 
tive Land Use, and (8) Changing Land 
Use through the Years. President Baker 
elaborated greatly on the proposed 
project in the early 19th century of the 
construction of a canal from the Boston 
Harbir, through the Connecticut and 
Hudson river valleys and joining the Erie 
canal at or near Troy and explained the 
engineering factors considered in the 
proposed plan. 

On the subject of changing land use 
through the years, President Baker re- 
marked: "For the first three hundred 
years of the Commonwealth there was 
very little serious misuse of the forest. 
Not until the growth of the cities up and 
down the Atlantic Coast through the 
first half of the last century, did there 
come a period of serious exploitation of 
the forests of the State. Along with the 
abuse of the forest went the use of the 

soil for agriculture. In 1880 *i| of the 

state was enclosed with farms while 
today .{5'( of the state is enclosed in 
over tiO.OOO small farms." 

Commenting on the future of the 
Commonwealth, President Baker said: 
"Massachusetts has l>efore it a great 
opportunity in the development of its 
non-agricultural areas, largely through 
forestry, for the conservation of water; 
for recreational purposes, including the 
production of fish and game; for stabi- 
lization of employment, and for the in- 
tangible but no less important value of 
increasing the beauty of the landscape of 
the state." 

President Baker concluded his talk 
with a discusJMfl of the relationship of 

the fanner to the engineer. "As industry 
through years of painful experience is 
beginning to learn that competition is 
not the life of trade but rather that co- 
operation is essential to success, so we are 
beginning to see that in the solution of 
multitudinous problems of agriculture 
thai cooperation is needed not only as 
between the Federal government antl the 
farmers but between the farmer, the 
forester and the engineer. Unfortunately, 
the engineer has too often in the past 
been somewhat indifferent to the prob- 
lems of the farmer and the forester be- 
cause he felt that there were more other 
more Important and more definitely 
engineering opportunities before him. 
The farmer and the forester are now 
ready to say to the engineer that there 
is no more important problems before 
the State than the gradual bringing about 
of complete and satisfactory land use 
with all that will add to the improvement 
of our economic and social life. The 
farmer and the forester are confident 
that the engineer will accept the chal-

In 19L5, the Alpha Chapter of Alpha 
Epsilon Pi was founded at New York 
University. A Beta chapter was added 
four years later and at the time of the 
twentieth annual national convention 
held from Dec. 24 to 27 in the Hotel 
Biltmore, Providence, the organization 
had developed into a senior national with 
twenty-one chapters. 

As official delegate of Delta Phi Alpha, 
Chancellor Alexander H. Freedman at- 
tended the convention which culminated 
in the induction ceremonies of the entire 
fraternity following a banquet, Dec. 7. 

Dean William Machmer of the State 
College was present and addressed the 
gathering as did Dr. Raymond G. Bressler, 
president of Rhode Island State College. 
Dr. Maxwell R. Goldberg '28, frater in 
facilitate, delivered a speech summing up 
the history and aims of Delta Phi Alpha. 

Members of Delta Phi Alpha present 
were: Dr. If. R. Goldberg '28, L. Pyen-

tional arm gestures and ballet steps 
are used. The polonaise, the polka, 
the gavotte and mazurka are all 
forms of this type of dancing and 
are learned as you learn a lesson from 
a book which some one has thought 
out and written for you. 

"The Natural Dance, like painting 
and sculpture and architecture has 
for a foundation the thought and 
feeling of the individual or group. In 
the Natural Dance, the body is the 
medium of expression for the emo- 
tional reactions of the individual. In 
order to have it a perfect instrument 
there must be developed a technique 
of flexibility and control and balance. 
This is done through exercises which 
will make the body respond quickly 
to the will of the individual or group. 

"A valuable gift needed for the 
student of the Natural Dance is 
rhythmic sensibility or that 'ordered 
movement which runs through all 
beauty' — music, poetry, art. In the 
rhythmic patterns of the dance the 
stress is in the muscles of the body, 
the change of weight, and the adap- 
tation of stress and weight, to space 
and time. 

"There are infinitely more possible 
rhythms in the human body than can 
be found in sound-rhythms but music 
with its rhythms and harmonies and 
melodies is a definite aid to begin- 
ners of the Natural Dance. How we 
all love to dance to music — to feel 
the relationship between the two arts! 
It initiates us into the generating 
causes of Being and shows us the most 
secret bases of things'. 

"While we are mastering muscle 
control and rhythm, good taste is be- 
ing developed and at the same time 
the essence of the dance — creative 
ability — is beginning to take root. 
Just what constitutes a complete 
dance we do not know. However, if 
an individual is capable of making 
evident an idea by expressing all 
progress of thought and emotions 
through body movement with order 
and style and harmony and without 
any accompaniment, the dance picture 
seems complete. 

"Is it necessary now to place in 
more words the educational value of 
the Natural Dance? It is one of the 
many ways of changing a mental and 
bodily chaotic condition to one with 
rhythm and coordination which re- 
sults in poise, balance, re-creation 
and restfulness."

immediately by the officials of the col- 
lege and nearly 150 men are at work 
improving the men and women's athletic 
fields. However, a difficulty has arisen 
in that the work under the Civil Works 
program must be completed by Feb. 15 
so that the work of the Public Works 
Administration might commence. Pro- 
fessor Hicks stated that because of poor 
weather and the lack of construction 
materials, the work on the athletic fields 
has DOM seriously delayed, and it is 
doubtful whether or not the work will be 
finished by the middle of February. 

Secretary llawley said that no money 
on the Public: Works program would l>e 
released until the completion of the Civil 
Works program, therefore no definite 
action can be taken towards the con- 
struction of the library and the dormi- 
tory until the funds are received from 
the Federal government. The plans for 
the dormitory has been completed and 
accepted by the State Commission in 
Boston but the plans for the library are 
not yet finished. Basil Wood, librarian 
of the College, has been in conference 
with the architects during the past 
month, and hopes that the completed 
plans for the new library will be ready 
before the end of January. The officials 
of the State College hope to be able to 
open the bidding for the new buildings 
by February 15. The contract states 
that the buildings must be ready for 
occupation by the students on Sept. 22 
so construction must begin by the first 
of March at the latest. 

At present the athletic field is such 
that the foul line of the baseball diamond 
intersects the running track and extends 
across the football field. The plan now 
being executed is to fill in the low land 
OH the southeast end of the field with soil 
taken from the southwest extension of 
the field. Thus the field will be extended 
00 a level to the south. Then the varsity 
football field with the circumscribed 
track will be moved along its major axis 
toward the south, thus amply clearing 
the baseball diamond foul line. Another 
football field may then be made to the 
north of the varsity field. The result of 
the project will be a much larger and 
mare conveniently arranged athletic field 
for men.

Also a new athletic field is being built 
for the use of the women students. This 
field is to be 400 feet long and 350 feet 
wide and is located just west of the 
vetinary laboratory and the physical 
education building. The women, who 
use the drill hall as their gymnasium will 
be able to go directly from there to the 
field and thus avoid the great inconven- 
ience of having to walk through the 
campus to the field west of the dormitory 
as they have done in the past. A 
deal of work is necessary by way of 
cutting, filling, and grading, but when ic 
is finished it will make an excellent fieM. 
It is expected that the extension of the 
men's athletic field will serve to take the 
place of the freshman field west of the 
drill hall which is now used by both the 
military and physical education depart- 
ments and has been selected as the site | 
for the new college library.

Famed Group of Musicians Under 

Alexander Thiede to Appear 

in Social Union Concert 

On Sunday afternoon, January 14, at 
3.30 p.m. the Boston Philharmonic Or- 
chestra under the leadership of Alexandre 
Thiede (commonly called Alex Thiede; 
will present a symphony concert. Stu- 
dents who enjoy hearing fine music will 
welcome this excellent opportunity for 
hearing the Boston Philharmonic Orches- 

Among the numbers which will be 
heard on the program are: Finale from 
Symphony No. 5, Haydn; Claire de 
Lune, Debussy; Dance of the Tumblers 
(from the Opera, The Snow Maiden), 
Kimsky-Korsakov; and Intermezzo from 
L Arnica Fritz by Mascagni. Mr. Thiede, 
himself an accomplished violinist, will 
offer interesting encores during the pro- 
gram. This group of musicians is coming 
to the college under the auspices of the 
Social Union. 

Mr. Thiede, the conductor, was for 
many years a prominent member of the 
Philadelphia Symphony Orchestra and 
later succeeded to the position of con- 
ductor of that orchestra. Mr. Thiede is 
known as an expert conductor, having 
served in that capacity, not only in 
Philadelphia, but also a.-> conductor of the 
St. Louis Symphony Orchestra and the 
Boston Symphony Orchestra. 

Mr. Thiede, who is a native of Easton, 
Pennsylvania, may be saij to have been 
born with a baton in his hand for his 
father was a famous musician and the 
young man commenced the study of 
music at a very early age. Singing, violin 
playing, harmony, and instrumentation 
soon l>ecame his regular regime. In fact, 
when but twelve years of age, Mr. Thiede 
was conducting the local theatre orches- 

I tra. After this followed a period in Boston 
as a violinist, during which time he toured 
New England as a soloist and then he was 

I called to Philadelphia and now he is at 
the head of the Boston Philharmonic 
Orchestra. Thus one may see that his 
environment through his entire life has 
been a musical one. Not only does he 
know what to expect from his body of 

I trained musicians, but he knows how to 

|obtain it, for he, himself, has played in

Dinner to be Given by Foreign Policy 
Association in Springfield 

Number 13 

President Hugh P. Baker will preside 
at the luncheon discussion of the Foreign 
Policy Association on Saturday, Jan. 13, 
at 12.45 o'clock at the Hotel Kimball in 
Springfield. The Connecticut Valley 
branch of the Foreign Policy Association 
will sponsor this discussion and the 
subject will be "The Versailles Treaty: 
Revision 1934? If so, How?" The 
speakers will be Doctor Arnold Wallers, 
S. K. Ratcliffe, and Charlotte Touzalin 

Doctor Arnold Walfers is professor of 
political science in Berlin and is in 
America as the 1933-34 visiting professor 
of International Relations at Vale Uni- 
versity. S. K. K.i.tlitlf is a noted British 
lecturer and journalist. He serves as the 
American correspondent for The London 
Observer and the Spectator, one of Great 
Britain's leading periodica Is. Charlotte 
Touzalin Muret received the degree of 
Doctor of Philosophy at Columbia Uni- 
versity and has lived in Paris for the 
past ten years. She has a wide acquaint- 
ance with the political leaders of Europe. 

The price of admission for non-members 
to the luncheon is $1.50 and students of 
Massachusetts State College will be 
admitted to the discussion for 25 cents. 




Massachusetts State College was well 
[represented by members of the faculty 
and of the Extension Service at the joint 
meetings of the American Statistical 
lA woci a ri OB, the American Economic As- 
I s " i uion and the Farm Economic Aaso- 
|ciaiion held at Philadelphia from Dec. 
I-- to 29. These meetings are held annu- 
lally during the Christmas holidays thus 
Ipermitting the professorial staffs of the 
■various colleges to l>e in attendance. 

Much of the time at the Philadelphia 
I ingi was devoted to a discussion of 

'■' currency problem. Professor George 
Warren of the department of agricul- 
tural economics at Cornell and one of 
|the President's monetary advisors ad- 
dressed thz conference. Other prominent 
>il figures addressing the various 
ms of the conference were Secretary 
Agriculture Henry A. Wallace, and 
I G. Tugwell, economic advisor to

Photographs of Campus Groups are 
Nearly Completed 

With the completion of the taking of 
the fraternity and the sorority pictures, 
the work on the 1934 Index is progressing 
as rapidly as the statistics of the classes 
can be collected and arranged. The aca- 
demic groups are now being photographed 
in Kinsman's studio and will soon be 

According to Daniel Foley, 'the editor 
of this year's Index, the senior pictures 
are being taken in groups according to 
the major department of the students. 
The seniors will be notified in classes 
when their group picture will be taken. 
The editor states that as only one definite 
time U available for each group, it is 
vital that each person be at Kinsman's 
studio promptly. The cooperation of 
every one is necessary if this plan is to 
be a success. 

While quite a few snap shots have 
been collected by the art department, 
many more are required. All snapshots 
of campus sjx>rts or activities are wanted. 
The art department especially needs per- 
sonal pictures of members of the senior 
class. The committee states that there 
must be students about the campus who 
possess snapshots of dignified seniors in 
undignified poses. Anyone who owns such 
pictures are requested to donate them to 
either Emil Trompash, Wendall Hovey 
or Elizabeth Perry. 

One of the notable features about the 
Massachusetts State College yearbook i.-> 
that it is issued to the entire student 
body. In many other colleges only the 
members of the senior class receive the 
book. The result of this wide circulation 
is a proportional lowering of the cost of 
the Index. This year, the Index has been 
changed from a junior book to a senior 
book. This change has been made in 
many other colleges that formerly pub- 
lished junior yearbooks. 


Leon Whitney '16 Advises Course in 
Eugenics for Counteracting Ten- 
dency toward Feeblemindedness 

Leon F. Whitney 'Hi, director of the 
American Eugenics Society, was the 
speaker at convocation on Thursday, 
January 4. The Subject Upon which Mr. 
Williams spoke was, "Are Mental Apti- 
tudes Inherited?". 

Mr. Whitney has as his hobby the 
breeding of dogs and during his life he 
lias practiced his hobby to the extent of 
breeding and owning MOO dags. Much of 
his time has been spent in trying to 
ascertain as to whether or not certain 
characteristics in dogs are inherited. One 
of Mr. Whitney's first tests involved the 
t Kissing of dogs who bayed on a trail and 
those who follow a trail mutely. The Fl 
generation arising from these crossings 
(200 cases) trailed openly. 

The second characteristic in dogs which 
he sought to analyze was the character- 
istic dogs have of trailing with head up 
or with head low. In the third experi- 
ment, Mr. Whitney crossed those dogs 
who point with those which are not 
pointers. The Fl generation in all cases 
resulting from such crossings are point 
ers. The fourth characteristic tested by 
Mr. Whitney was that of crossing dogs 
having an affinity for water with those 
who do not like the water. In every 
instance the resulting individuals liked 
the water. Mr. Whitney l)elieves that 
the results of these experiments prove 
conclusively that certain aptitudes in 
dogs may be inherited, and that the 
Behaviorists who hold that inheritance

McCarthy, southworth 
secure leading roles 


Rev. Bernard C. Clausen of Syracuse 
is to speak in chapel, Sunday, Jan. 14. 
Reverend Clausen is a leader in religious 
thought and a very much sought after 
speaker, having addressed the students of 
Vassar, Wellesley, Cornell, Mt. Holyoke, 
and Meredith as well as this college. 

Reverend Clausen was graduated from 
Colgate University, A.B. and M.A. in 
the class of 1915, and from the Union 
Theological Seminary in 1918. He re- 
ceived his D.D. from Syracuse Univer- 
sity in 1922. During the World War he 
served as chaplain in the U. S. Navy on 
board the U.S.S. North Carolina. 

"The power of Christ to provide the 
more abundant life," was the theme of 
the religious conference which he con- 
ducted last fall on this campus. Rev. 
Clausen based the discussions on the 
more abundant life as set forth in his 
book, "The Miracle of Me." The con- 
ference was very well attended by the 
students and shows the manner in which 
he is received by students everywhere. 
Reverend Clausen has written a great 
many books. Two of the l>est known are 
"The Door That Has No Key," and "Pen 
Portraits of the Twelve." 

Shirley McCarthy, Warren South- 
worth, Lorraine Noyes and Nath- 
aniel Hill Cast for "There's 
Always Juliet" 

As a result of the Roister Dnister try- 
outs, Monday evening, Jan. 8, for the 
modern comedy written by John Van 
Draten, There's Always Juliet, the leading 
roles went to Shirley McCarthy '34 and 
Warren Southworth '34. They will por- 
tray Leonora and English girl and 
Dwight, the American who falls in love 
with her. 

Leonora's English housekee|>er, Flor- 
ence, will be interpreted by Lorraine 
Noyes '3(i. The other male part, that of 
Peter an Englishman, will be portrayed 
by Nathaniel Hill '34. Helen Bruns '3(5 
and Edward Law 86 will play Romeo 
and Juliet in the selections from Shaken 
peare which will preface Van Druten's 

Though this cast is much smaller than 
that of any play previously produced here, 
the size of the cast is a decided advantage 
if the play is to l>e taken olf the campus. 

The play concerns the adventures of an 
American, who, travelling in England 
falls in love with an English girl. His 
courtship of the girl who is reputedly the 
fiancee of an Englishman is the story of 
the play.

Earle Looker of Northampton, a well- 
known American writer and journalist, 
will be the guest speaker at the faculty 
smoker in the Memorial Hall on Tuesday 
evening, January 16, at 8, Professor 
Frandsen, chairman of the faculty smok- 
er committee announced yesterday. The 
members of the Massachusetts State 
College faculty will entertain the mem- 
bers of the Amherst College faculty in 
the informal meeting. 

"The Personality of President Franklin 
Roosevelt" will be the subject of Mr. 
Looker's talk before the faculty gathering. 
Earle Looker is the author of many books 
his latest effort, "This Man — Franklin 
Roosevelt," being one of the best sellers 
in literary circles today. In 1928 Mr. 
Looker wrote a book, "The White House 
Gang," which received national promi- 
nence because of its intimate anecdotes 
of the family life of President Theodore 
Roosevelt in the White House. 

Earle Looker is a graduate of Harvard 
College and has led a very active life. 
He has served as an American news- 
paperman, an ambulance driver with the 
British, French, Indian, and Belgian 
armies during the recent War. During 
the past years he has l>een a magazine 
editor and a feature writer and has 
enjoyed an intimate acquaintance with 
President Franklin Roosevelt. During 
the World War, Earle Looker had a pre 
dilection for collecting photographs of 
the famous and the infamous, picture, 
of wounded men, while his present hobb) 
is photographing old American houses. 

Earle Looker was a member of the

President Baker yesterday forwarded 
t<> the specie] Si.ite Commission in charge 
ol the Civil Works Administration funds, 
projects for the employment of thirty 
scientifically trained workers at Massa- 
chusetts State College. These projects 
are in line with the recent extension of the 
Civil Works program by which teachers 
and technically trained men and women 
are made eligible for employment. It is 
understood by the officials of the Admin- 
istration Office at Massachusetts State 
College that in some states such workers 
are already employed in colleges and in 
the public school system. 

Secretary 1 1 aw ley in an interview 
yesterday said that the administration 
had no |M>sitivc assurance that the project 
would DO approved by the s|>ccial State 
Commission but that a determined effort 
would be made to secure the necessary 
funds. Secretary Hawley stated: "If 
these projects are approved and the funds 
apportioned, much valuable additional 
i inarch and teaching service can be 
rendered by the College, and the oppor- 
tunity will l>e furnished to some well- 
trained persons who are eager for it. 
I'ndoubtedly, our own graduates will 
receive first consideration in the filling of 
these positions." 

Twelve departments of the College 
have prepared these projects for the em- 
ployment of thirty persons and they in- 
clude a variety of research and teaching 
services. The departments which have 
submitted projects are: agricultural en- 
gineering, agronomy, bacteriology and 
physiology, l>otany, chemistry, dairying, 
education, entomology, zoology and geol- 
ogy, farm management, physics, poultry 

An example of the projects submitted 
is one for research in chemistry under the 
direction of Doctor Edward D. Holland. 
This proposes a study to determine the 
total ash, calcium, phosphorous, copper, 
iron, and possibly manganese, zinc, and 
io line in certain human foods. It would 
involve the employment of four persons 
for a period of approximately 20 weeks. 

The department of botany has sub- 
mitted a project for the employment of 
four additional instructors for classroom 
teaching. The department of agricul- 
tural engineering proposes a project for 
the employment of one person to draw 
plans of farm buildings and to prepare 
teaching material for classroom and ex- 
tension instruction. 

Three different studies are proposed 
by the department of agronomy including 
the colloidal nature of certain Massachu- 
setts soils, the rate of growth of plants 
in different nutrient solution*, and the 
classification of turf soils, which projects 
are estimated to occupy three men for a 
period of five months.

American politics have produced 
some queer figures since the days 
of George Washington, Alexander 
Hamilton, and Thomas Jefferson, 
but none so rabid and noisey as 
the Honorable Huey P. Long, U. 
S. Senator from Louisiana. Since 
the Honorable Huey was elected 
to this office, citizens from the 
other 47 states have been wonder- 
ing just why Louisiana happened 
to make such a mistake, but now 
the people from the bayous have 
decided that even the best of 
people make mistakes. 

Tuesday's newspapers carried 
reports to the effect that Huey's 
political machine ran into open 
revolution. A seven day demon- 
stration was climaxed by the 
burning of Huey's effigy by a 
hooting crowd in the Hammond, 
La., public square. The outburst 
came about as the result of the 
administration's attemlts to elect 
a state congressman without party 
primary. Injunctions were granted 
to the citizens by district courts 
preventing election supervisors 
from distributing ballots. In spite 
of the demonstrations and injunc- 
tion processes, Senator Long an- 
nounced that the election would 
go forward as planned and that 
any attempts to interfere with the 
voting would be met with prosecu- 
tion in Federal Courts. Results of 
this novel election will be com- 
pleted soon and should be more 
than interesting, for if the Honor- 
able Huey is defeated in his elec- 
tion scheme, it probably means the 

According to latest reports from the 
Registrar's Office enrollment in the new

It looks as though there would be a few,

Romance of Mathematics." Some of us

first step in the downfall of the 
Long political machine. 

Huey Long has done nothing to 
merit the applause of the populace 
since he took up his duties in 
Washington. On the contrary, his 
name has been most widely men- 
tioned in connection with fistic 
encounters and similar accom- 
plishments, in which Huey has 
come off second best. He has 
been made the laughing stock of 
the nation, and when his political 
career comes to an end, as it is 
bound to very shortly. Huey 
could probably continue his suc- 
cessful position as an entertainer 
of millions by going to Hollywood 
and becoming one of Ted Healy's 

The situation that now exists 
in Louisiana is comparable to the 
nefarious New York Tweed Ring. 
Huey has such a complete grip 
on the political situation in Louisi- 
ana that peaceful measures had no 
effect. Flagrant disregard for the 
law has been the keynote of Huey's 
political success, which fact is well 
realized by the people of that state. 
However, it seems that the end is 
not far off, for when the voters 
begin to take strong and active 
measures against such a combina- 
tion, one can rest well assured that 
they have stood more than e- 
nough. The handwriting is on the 
wall, and we wonder whether that 
peerless Southern gentleman will 
read it in time.

O maid of impertinent manners, O damsel 
O damsel of indolent mien, 
You come like an army with banners, 
Triumphant, exultant — a queen; 
As cool as the winds o'er the prairies, 
As fresh as the blossoms of May, 
You're full of astounding vagaries 
O Girl of Today. 

Your costume is scanty, O goddess: 
A slip with a shoe-string begirt 
That boasts nothing much of a bodice 
And Haunts rather less of a skirt ; 
The imbecile stuff of your hose is 
Sheer silk of the thinnest of thins, 
Whose gauze half conceals, half discloses, 
Your shapely young shins.

Freshman co-eds and Abbey residents

and Mrs. Frank Waugh chaperoned the

money orders yearly and employs 22 
people. In terms of daily output, this 
means the handling of 200 sacks of in- 
coming mail daily, including parcel post 
(90$ of which is students' laundry cases) 
and between five and six thousand Utters 
or on: to each inhabitant of the town. 

"Although the biggest part of this work 

comes during the college year," said Mr. 

Shea, "quite a lot comes in summer due 

to the Extension Service which turns out 

225,(KM) pieces of mail annually and gets 

back about 100,000 -and it's all franked, 

(free postage), too, wWdi is enough to 

bow the back of the strongest postman." 

The record volume of business done in 

one day was when Santa Clans combined 

with the pre-depression spirit to dispose 

of 75,000 two cent glyphographs in one 

day. However, last year a score of 50,000 

of the increasingly popular l', cent 

Hardings for Christmas cards set the 

pace -7,000 being purchased by one man. 

Who licked them is unknown but it is 

estimated that he had the taste out of 

his mouth in time to appreciate the New 

Year's festiviiies. 

"Most of the trouble in handling mail 
comes from incorrect addresses. This is 
partly due to the fact that there are no 
leea than ten Amherst's in America and 
we get pari ol their mail at some time, as 
well as from Aciishnct. a name people 
carelessly write to resemble Amherst." 

A favorite stunt of students is to write 
a postcard home telling to "rush up the 

Miss Ada Burning, president of the 
Y.W.C.A. at Simmons College, addressed 
the members of the Y last Sunday morn- 
ing. Her topic was "What the Y.W.C.A. 
Means to Me." After the meeting Miss 
Burning gave the Cabinet some sugges- 
tions in planning the activities of the 

Chemistry book in the left top drawer of 
the kitchen bureau," and then leave the 
address off the card. Sometimes the 
student can be traced and sometimes he 
flunks the exam. 

Other statistics gleaned were: 75$ of 
the State College mail passes through the 
College Inn substation; air mail is used 
principally by Amherst students from the 
West; the correspondence between Am- 
herst and Northampton or South Hadlcy 
is much smaller than it supposed to be; 
and professor's sons find many philatelic 
friends because their fathers get most of 
the foreign mail. "Mike" Garvey, the 
genial postman of the Row, estimate half 
of his 1400 daily load goes to students 
and gives Theta Chi the title of best 

"For many years I worked in the 
■temp window," continued Mr. Shea. 
"People used me as a general information 
bureau. For instance one student burst 
in one day and asked, 'How many square 
feet are there in an acre?' " 

The prize occasion was when some 
Amherst students wanted to locate a 
pregnant cat for a biological experiment. 
Strange to say, they got the information. 

"Now one more question, Mr. Shea," 
we asked l>efore leaving the scene of the 
package hurling clerks, "Did anyone ever

Sextet Plays Two on Trip 


In a hotly contested battle last Friday 
night in the Cage, the sophomore class 
basketball team carried off a close 19-17 
victory over the freshmen, and became 
the 1934 interclass basketball champions. 
The second year team had previously

were victorious in their tussle with the 
1934 five.

their sharp shooting forward line of 
Sturtevant and the Peckham twins, were 
able to hold a lead throughout the game, 
the freshmen were always threatening and 
the outcome was in doubt right up to the 
last minute. 

At the start of the last quarter the 
sophomores had piled up an 8 point lead 
and were holding it successfully, when a 
sudden freshman assault netted three 
baskets. With the game almost over 
Marr, the 1937 left forward, made a 
spectacular try for the tying basket only 
to have the ball fall outside the hoop 
.liter rolling around the rim. The whistle 
ending the game sounded immediately 

Outstanding for the first-year team was 
the work of Sanson, Kirby, Bongiolotti, 
and Barr, the latter two accounting for 
the majority of the freshman points.

With fourteen candidates answering his 
call for the freshman hockey squad, Coach 
Ernie Mitchell waits only suitable ice to 
start the men in at regular practice. Al- 
though there has been no definite sched- 
ule arranged as yet, the team will prob- 
ably play several nearby prep schools. 

Among those showing promise as to 
their ability on the ice are Tabor Pol- 
hemus, who starred as a cross-country 
runner for State last season and who was 
notable as a left-defense man at Mt. 
Hermon where he prepared for Massa- 
chusetts State. William Johnson of 
Clark School, Harvey Turner from An- 
i lover, and Max Kramer, a versatile wing 
man from Winthrop High, are outstand- 
ing aspirants for the offensive positions. 

The total list of candidates reporting 

Wings — John Hanson, Max Kramer, 
Millel Friedman, William Johnson, Ed- 
ward Thacker, Leo Lipman, and Harvey 

Defense — Richard Bohm, Austin Fish- 
er, Edwin Bernstein, Thomas Maguire, 
labor Polhemus, and Rodger Smith. 

Goal — Kingsbury Houghton. 


State's varsity hockey squad will spend 
this week-end on the road, journeying to 
Durham, N. H. to meet the New Hamp- 
shire State Wildcats on Friday and thence 
to Boston where the M.I.T. pucksters 
will play host to the Statesmen on 

The New Hampshire Wildcats will 
bend their efforts in order to down the 
State puckmen for the second consecu- 
tive year. Last year they nosed out the 
Maroon team by a one goal margin, 2-1. 
Neither team was able to display its true 
form on account of poor ice but the 
White Mountain skaters scored twice 
early and were content to play defensively 
and protect their lead for the rest of the 
game. This year's team is composed 
almost wholly of members of last year's 
freshman team which is claimed to have 
t>een the strongest ever at New Hamp- 
shire. However, the weather in the Green 
Mountain state has been just as unfavor- 
able for hockey as it has here, and both 
State and New Hampshire are in the 
same predicament as regards practice. 

Tech's sextet this year gives every in- 
dication of being the strongest in years. 
Its schedule is already well underway; 
and although it was nosed out by Har- 
vard, Yale, and Brown earlier in the 
season, State will be wary of the offense 
such as the Boston ians staged at West 
Point last week. On the short end of a 
4-1 score with ten minutes left to play, 
they exhibited a sterling five-man offense 
against the Army net, tied the score, and 
then forged ahead in the overtime to the 
extent of three goals — winning 7-4. 

The Engineers will seek a victory in 
retaliation for that which the State sex- 
tet eked out from them last year. The 
play in this game was also seriously 
hampered by poor ice and State came out 
on top through the efforts of Captain 
Hammond's spectacular goal. 

The Maroon pucksters, with very little 
more than four or five hours total prac- 
tice due to poor ice, will endeavor to 
nullify the Engineers' offense with efforts 
of their own and will probably be forced 
to rely much on the teamwork with 
which they clicked last year. 

Lack of ice has hampered Coach Ball 
in his efforts to develop some reserve and 
substitute material, the necessity of which 
was evidenced in the Brown game when 
the Bears put substitutes to the extent of 
three whole teams on the ice. The start- 
ing whistle will probably find Corcoran 
at right wing, Pop Henry at left wing, 
Captain Snow at center, Wihry at left 
defense, and Blackburn at right defence 
although Coach Ball is anxious to test 
Fred Murphy, a promising sophomore, in 
that position. McGuckian, who did a 
commendable job in the nets against 
Brown, despite what the score indicates, 
will guard the goal.

Winter track practice for freshmen will 
be held informally until the opening of 
the second semester. Meets for the 
yearling runners will be held with the 
Stockbridge School and with the Amherst 
freshmen — and possibly with another one 
of the Amherst class teams. The opening 
meet for the frosh will be an interclass 
contest, the last of February, in which 
the State athletes and Stockbridge School 
runners will compete by classes. 

An unusual feature of the State relay 
team this year is the large number of 
sophomores who are striving for positions 
on the team and the relative lack of 
seniors. Only one member of the class of 
'34 has reported — Bob Jackson; while 
there are five sophomores and three 
juniors who are likely members of the 
quartet. The only veteran — Glenn Shaw 
— is a junior, while the other two are 
Walt Stepat, captain-elect of cross- 
country, and Ray Siira. The sophomore 
candidates are Ted Kerr, Bob Lincoln, 
Battles, Parker, and Potter. 

Amherst's first game on the basketball 
floor took place yesterday with Clark in 
the Pratt cage. Coach Lloyd Jordan of 
the Jeffs can place a live on the lloor 
made up entirely of captain*. Mariott 
and Fusco are co-captains this year, while 
Art English, Bob Moses, and Earl Turner 
were captains of their freshman teams. 
Of this group, Fusco and Turner hold 
down the forward berths; Moses and 
Marriott arc stationed at guards; and 
English is center. For reserves, Jordan 
can send in two lettermen, Greet at for- 
ward and Van Nostrand at guard; while 
for subs at center, he has Nielson and 

The Williams hoop team opened its 
season at Springfield Saturday night by 
downing the Gymnasts, ."$5-28; and the 
hockey team of the Purple played its 
opener with Middlebury Tuesday. '1 he 
Williams sextet has been working out 
intensively for a week at Lake Placid. 
The ice team has only two veterans avail- 
able — both in the defense positions, the 
forward line and the goalie being new to 
their positions. 

Evidently the Hamilton sextet has had 
more exijerience than the skaters from 
Williamstown, for the team from Clinton 
beat the Purple sextet in both practice 
games held at Lake Placid during the

State Joins Soccer League 
Court Season Opens Here 


Giving its supporters their first chance 
to see a Taul>e-coached basketball team 
in action, the Massachusetts State College 
five will open the 1934 season with 
Middlebury providing the opposition to- 
night at 8 p.m. on the Cage floor. 

Middlebury has already played three 
games while this is the Maroon ami 
White's first contest, so they should pro- 
vide some stubborn opposition. Last veai 
in State's third game of the season the 
Maroon quintet downed Middlehury 
48-31. Joe Lojko led the scoring by 
running up 18 points. 

Especially outstanding for the Panthers 
has been the work of Sweet, tall center of 
the Middlebury five, who is a high scorer 
and very hard to stop. Leete, who, when 
playing for Williamstown, was chotM as 
the most valuable player in the annual 
Small Higfa School tournament held at 
State two years ago, is also a main COg in 
the Middlebury machine. 

The Middlebury team is a high scoring 
aggregation, having tallied from .'{"> to BO 
points in each of the three |imw played 
so far. However, despite Middlebury's 
advantage in having been in action 
longer, the Maroon and White are confi- 
dent of coming out on the long end of 
the score. 

With Captain Joe l.ojko, Lou Bush, Ed 
Nassif, and Bill Frigard, lettermen from 
last year's team, and Davis, McConchie, 
Mel Stewart, Johnny Stewart, Ernie 
Jaworski, Allen, Consolatti, and Thayer 
showing up well, Coach Mel Taul>e has 
assembled a group which should give a 
good account of itself against any oppo- 

When the opening whistle blows to- 
night, the Maroon and White will prob- 
ably take the floor as follows: Bill Davis 
or John McConchie at center, Lou Bush 
or Mel Stewart at right forward, John 
McConchie or Ed Nassif at left forward, 
Joe Lojko or Bill Frigard at floor guard, 
and Ernie Jaworski or Johnny Stewart at 
back guard. 

Journeying to Storrs, Conn, on Monday 
night, the State hoop team will take on a 
Connecticut State five which is deter- 
mined to avenge last year's defeat. Al- 
though little is known regarding the 
strength of this year's Connecticut team 
they possess a fighting spirit and will 
provide stiff opposition. Last year the 
Maroon and White triumphed only by 
virtue of a last minute rally barely nosing 
out a victory, 22-19. 


Women interested in rifling have an 
opportunity to participate in this sport

At a meeting held at Harvard Univer- 
sity last Saturday, Mass.u feueetta State 
College l>ecame a member of the New 
England Intercollegiate Soccer League 
ami an associate member of the Inter- 
collegiate Soccer Football Association. 
The Maroon and White soccer team will 
participate in this league beginning next 
season, along with Harvard, Brown, 
M.I.T., Dartmouth, Springfield, Conn. 
State, and Tufts. 

Thomas Taylor, assistant physical edu- 
cation director of Brown University was 
elected secretary -treasurer, and he will 
also act as presiding officer of the league. 

Much credit is due the authorities at 
Harvard for their initiation of this move. 
The object of this league is the promotion 
of soccer as an intercollegiate sport and 
the organization of league competition. 
Each team is to play three games with 
other teams in the league this year. The 
various colleges have arranged their 
schedules and the number of league 
games is consequently limited, but plans 
for four league games for each team next 
year and eventually having each team 
play every other team in the league. 

The loagM standing is to be decided 
on the point system. Two points will be 
awarded for every victory, one point for 
a tie game, and no |M>ints for a defeat. 

The other small colleges which have 
already In-come meml>ers of this organiz- 
atioa are Tufts and Connecticut State. 
Efforts are being made to secure the 
memliership in this league of Wesleyan, 
Williams, and Amherst. Coach Marsh, 
Lord Jeff soccer coach, has signified his 
intention of placing the Amherst team in 
this league if Wesleyan and Williams 
Income members and undoubtedly when 
the soccer season starts next fall the 
Lictle Three will be members. 

Coach Larry Briggs is very strongly in 
favor of this arrangement and considers 
the successful operation of the organiza- 
tion a big boost for intercollegiate soccer 
in New England. With the future possi- 
bility of a subdivision of this league into 
two sections, one for large colleges, and 
one for small colleges, he sees the build- 
ing up of a soccer rivalry which will 
compare favorably with that of other 
intercollegiate sports. 

James M. Sampson, a former manager 
of the Harvard hooters, who has always 
shown a keen interest in the sport, 
donated a cup which will be given to the 
winner of the league competition next 
fall. The cup is named after the donor. 

The representatives present at the 
meeting Saturday were: Coach Fletcher 
and J. W. Taylor of Brown; Dr. Rock- 
well of M.I.T.; Coach Briggs of Meat 
State; E. S. deGroat, Coach Brock, and 
Manager \cpper of Springfield; C. P. 
Houston of Tufts; Jack Cam, Manager 
Sampson, and Kskie Clark of Harvard.

Revolt of Masses, Shape of Things to 

Come and Telifer Purchased 

by Library 



Committee Plans Atmosphere 
Militarism for Annual 
R.O.T.C. Ball 




The Revolt of the Masses by Jose 
Ortega y Gusset, Poor Splendid Wings, 
a story of the Kossettis and their circle; 
H. G. Wells' The Shape of Things to 
Come; The Catholic Faith by Paul Elmor 
More and An Astronomer's Life by Edwin 
Frost, are among the new books recently 
purchased by the Massachusetts State 
College library. 

Below are short resumes of the most 
important books of the past year and of 
IBM recently received by the library. 

The Revolt of the Masses by Jose Ortega 
y Gasset is already regarded as one of the 
significant and original books of our 
times. It attempts to answer several 
perplexing quest ions. Can Western culture 
survive the encroachments of the mass- 
man? Can republican institutions sur- 
vive this chaotic democracy? Ortega is 
one of the founders of the Spanish Re- 
public and a member of its Parliament. 
He also holds the chair of philosophy at 
the University of Madrid. 

An Astronomer's Life by Edwin Brant 
Frost is the autobiography of a dis- 
tinguished astronomer, a leading author- 
ity on astro-physics. The book itself is a 
picturesque record of scientific adventure 
but it is more than that, and it will hold 
the reader's interest fully. 

The Catholic Faith is written by Paul 
Elmer More, who is recognized as one of 
the most brilliant writers of our times, 
and who has been called more than once 
America's most outstanding humanist. 
This new book is an addition to his 
famous series, The Creek Tradition. 

Dorothy Canfield has written another 
novel entitled Bonfire, the story of a 
Vermont village and a dramatic modern 
novel of love and marriage. All the 
village people play their part in it: the 
fiery young doctor, impatient of tradition 
and conventions; the girl who loves him, 
and a group of other old Vermont charac- 

Poor Splendid Wings by Frances Win- 
war is a biographical narrative of the men 
and women who as young rebels over- 
turned the drowsy art of Victorian 
England to leave in its place paincings, 
volumes of printing and poetry, and new 
forms of furniture. 

In The Shape of Things to Come, H. G. 
Wells gives a short history of the world 
for the next century in which he describes 
the breakdown of modern civilization, 
the war between the United States and

In 156 Colleges Members of Fraterni- 
ties Rank Higher Scholastically 
Than Non-fraternity Men 

Scholarship ratings of fraternity men 
at Massachusetts State show a higher 
average than those of non-fraternity, 
according to a survey just released by the 
National I nterf raternity Conference, an 
organization of sixty-nine leading fra- 
ternities in the United States. 

Not only does the scholastic average of 
the fraternity man rank higher than the 
non-fraternity in a majority of the 156 
colleges studied, but the rating is higher 
than the all-men's average, which in- 
cludes both unaffiliated and Greek-letter 
students. The group average of 59$ of 
the fraternities exceeds the all-men's 
averages on respective campuses. 

The total undergraduate enrolment of 
the institutions in the report numbers 
approximately 250,000, of whom nearly 
70,000 are members of the 2104 chapter 
groups of the Greek-letter organizations 
in the I nterf raternity Conference. 

Outstanding among the facts revealed 
by the 1983 survey is that all-men's 
averages have risen in 79$ of the insti- 
tutions of the country, denoting an in- 
creasing amount of attention to academic 
objectives on the part of undergraduate 

In a highly warlike atmosphere, the 
annual Military Ball of the Massachu- 
setts State College Reserve Officers 
Training Corps will be held on Saturday, 
Jan. 13 at 8 o'clock. The Drill Hall is 
to be decorated in a militaristic fashion 
with Bert Green and his orchestra play- 
ing in back of a machine-gun parapet. 

The walls of the Drill Hall are to be 
covered with panels featuring cavalry 
weapons. Banners of various nations 
are to be massed near the orchestra while 
the guests will dance under a ceiling 
draped with an American Hag. The 
placing of machine guns in front of the 
orchestra will give the impression of 
military defenses. The resulting warlike

Mr. Giustino E. Bosio, lecturing in this 
country under the auspices of the Classic- 
Art Center of the Waldorf Astoria Hotel, 
New York City, will address the student 
convocation on Jan. 18. His topic of 
discussion will be "Fascist's Youth." 
Under this subject he will include an 
analysis of youth under the Fascist 
doctrine, the school reform, and the 
moral, intellectual, and spiritual de- 
velopment of Italy. 

Mr. Bosio has been sent over to this 
country by Ameritalia for organization 
and propaganda purposes. His family 
has for many generations been one of the 
leading families in the banking field. 
Such a background, together with his 
studies, have helped him in his very 
successful tour -abroad and in the U. S. 

Being a follower of the Fascist doctrine, 
and for his long practice in the Italian 
economic field, he is entitled to speak 
with authority on all movements and 
problems undertaken by the Fascist 
government in his country. 

Student Working Scholarships to 
Continue as Planned until June 

News that the special Emergency 
Student Fund established for the first 
time under the management of Professoi 
Glatfelter last September will be carried 
through as originally planned due to a 
second appropriation of $2, "KM) by the 
legislature, wa- received .it the Student 
Employment Office. 

This appropriation, which will be 
handled in the same maimer as the first 
one, is planned to give student employ- 
ment until June and it is hoped that next 
year it will Ik: possible to get a similar 
$5,000 ap pr opriation to continue the 
Placement Service as a permanent fea- 

First established in order that needy 
students might gain experience working 
as well as financial benefit, the Emergency 
Fund has proved of advantage both to 
the students and to the department em- 
ploying them as many special positions 
were created to use the money allot ed. 

Students have been selected from the 
list of applicants prepared by the Place- 
ment Service on a basis that gave a 70^ 
rating on actual need and 30£ on scholar- 
ship in order to provide for students not 
reached through regular scholarship 

The first appropriation made last 
summer, which had to he spent before 
Nov. 1 when the fiscal year ended, pro- 
vided employment for 120 students in 88 
campus department! for an average of 
$20.83 per student. The rate of pay next 
semester will be 25c per hour as in the 
past with a maximum earning of $30 per 
student. This is planned to have working 
scholarships of $00 per year.

The Beta group are presenting two 
one-act plays and will be under the

has selected for their first offering a 
dramatization of Edgar Allan Poe's "The 
Fall of the House of Usher." A second 
selection will be "The Sham," a comedy 
by Thompkins. 

On account of a surprise element in 
the Beta presentations, the director has 
not wished to divulge the cast. More 
complete information regarding these 
plays would tend to lessen the surprise 
element which they hold. 

The Patterson Players have decided to 
present these plays for the enjoyment of 
the entire student body and no admission 
will be charged. The college orchestra 
under the direction of Edgar Sorton will 
play during the intermissions.

New Deal Seen 


Dr. F. M. Cutler Reviews Work of the 
New Deal in Amherst Record 

When, last summer, one was asked his 
opinion concerning "national recovery" 
and the "new deal," one could only give 
a conventional reply; it was a patriotic 
experiment nobly conceived which musi 
not fail. Now, after nine months, it is 
still difficult to render a balanced judg- 
ment. But one can s|>eak of the project 
in certain of its MpCCta with reasonabh 

There is a considerable business revival, 
with a vast improvement of popular 
morale. Many good Americans have 
been transferred from the "unemployed" 
to the category of "workers." As a con 
sequence, hours of work are shorter, 
profits are less for those who manage 
business enterprises, and an increase of 
leisure constitutes a new problem for 
many. It might be noted that the teach- 
ing professor does not participate in thu 
last problem; they are not conscious ef 
any excess leisure. Withal prices have BOl 
advanced; so that the dollar still bu>~ 
about what it used to. Bankers bnvc 
suffered inroads upon their immemorial 
privilege of controlling private credits and 
loans; and as a consequence, they wish 
to withdraw the gratuitous service that 
they have heretofore rendered in pro- 
tecting and transmitting private funds 
for their customers. Child labor has been 
abolished, at least temporarily; and a 
proposed amendment to the U. S. Con- 
stitution has been ratified by 19 of the 
necessary 30 states (by 13 during 19 
aiming to make the reform permanent. 

We have been accustomed to trace the 
"depression" back to the World War am! 
the stupendous waste attendant then- 
upon. We have believed that the World 
War generation began some time in 19b' 
and it became reactionary in 1919, and 
that it was due to end in 1933. Even 
acknowledged the notable spirit of i 
operation and sacrifice characterizing the 
years of actual warfare. I now find 
self wondering whether the end did < > 
in 1933. 

Close parallels exist l>etween 1918 end

Vernon Helming 

Opens Lectures 

"The Pilgrimage in Chaucer's Can- 
terbury Tales" is First of 
Nine Talks 

Vernon P. Helming, an instructor in 
i he English department of Massachu- 
Ktta State College opened the tenth 
annuel series of Language and Literature 
t.dks with a discussion of The Pilgrimage 
in Chaucer's Canterbury 'Tales in the 
Memorial Building last Tuesday evening. 
Mr. Helming opened his talk with a 
discussion of Geoffrey Chaucer's associ- 
ation with the pilgrimages in the England 
,,i Ids period and then traced from the 
birth of Christ the importance of the 
pilgrimage in the life of man and his 
h ligion. In commenting on Chaucer's 
ability to write of "The Canterbury 
Tales," Mr. Helming said: "Geoffrey 
Chaucer was an excellent story teller. 
Chaucer was regarded by many con- 
temporaries as a better raconteur than 
a poet. From 1385 on Chaucer lived near 
the road to Canterbury over which 
thousands of pilgrims traveled on their 
way to the shrine of St. Thomas." 

Mr. Helming offered evidence that 
strongly supports the belief that in 1387 
Chaucer himself made the pilgrimage to 
the Shrine of St. Thomas. Many thou- 
Mndf of persons from every walk in life 
nude the pilgrimages and thus it was 
not difficult for Chaucer to find charac- 
ters who would be able to relate an in- 
teresting and intelligent story. Mr. 
Helming offered the suggestion that when 
the landlord offered to be the master of 
ceremonies to the group of twenty-nine 
pilgrims gathered at the tavern that the 
landlord made the suggestion with an eye 
for business. 
Mr. Helming commented that Chaucer 

I does not once mention a shrine in his 
Tales and Chaucer writes no descriptions 
of religious observances in his great work. 
Throughout the centuries the ancestors 
of all nations have made journeys to 
shrines of worship, the most notable 

I pagan pilgrimages being the great jour- 

I neys of a host of Mohammedans to 
Mecca. Mr. Helming said it was a very 

[significant fact that "none of the four 
^os|>els command the people to make 

| pilgrimages to shrines of worship." 

"In 385, an event of great importance 

I occurred in Christian religion which 
marked the commencement of the pil- 
grimages to worship at shrines. Three 
crosses, all of them true crosses, were 

I di scover ed beneath the pagan homes on 
the hills of Calvary. In order to discover 

I which cross supported Christ, a sick man 
was commanded to touch each cross. 

I When he touched the cross of Christ he 

|\vas healed." 

Mr. Helming related that the Church 

lit It that as Christ had died for the sins 

I"! mankind, that human beings would be 
to gain an absolution for their sins 

lit they were humble, frank and penitent. 

[The belief developed associating diety 

Kith a place, and that the Saint might 
better intercede with God on the behalf 
)f the sinner if the sinner made a pil- 
grimage to the shrine of the Saint. It 
fas (he common belief that the pilgrim 
hiual be humble both in appearance as 
veil as spirit. 

" The zenith of the pilgrimages was 
^eac ded between 850 and 1050, during 
rhich more than six Saxon kings made 

the pilgrimage to Rome." During the 
Holy Wars, Mr. Helming stated that the 
Church played the role of the avenging 
prophet and descrhV'd the Crusades as 
a most serious blow at the reputatihn ot 
the ecclesiastical doctrines of the church. 
Indulgences were granted by the Church 
to many criminals and murderers ami in 
the 13th century, the Home of Christ in 
Jerusalem was the "meeting place of 
vicious men." 

In Chaucer's day the peasant regarded 
the pilgrimage as an outing. Mr. Helming 
Commented; "If there is any touch of 
satire in the 'Tales it is the fact that the 
Monk and the Prioress, who were for- 
bidden to leave the cloisters, were mak- 
ing the pilgrimages fo Canterbury, six 
miles away. The wife of Bath descrilies 
the purpose of most of the Pilgrims when 
she stated, 'I was weary and have turned 
to play'."

End and Beginning by John Masefield 
is the poetic drama of the execution of 
Mary Stuart, of her courage when the 
officer brings word of her doom, of her 
faith that her death would be but the 
beginning of her life, and of her gratitude 
to her prison guard. 

Arthur Eloesser, one of the foremost 
critics of literature and drama in Ger- 
many today has written a book entitled 
Modern German Literature which presents 
the great number of significant writeis in 
Germany today. 

Edward Arlington Robinson ha s made 
another important contribution to Ameri- 
can Literature with his Cavender's House. 
Love and the death of love shattered by 
doubt compose the theme of this new- 
poem. Mr. Robinson again suggests the 
irony and inscrutability of life.

effect will be the work of the decoration 
committee which is composed of Laurence 
Schenk and William Bower. 

According to Ambrose McGuckian, 
member of the committee in charge of 
the Military Ball, copies of State songs 
have been sent to Bert Green. It is 
probable that the orchestra leader will 
feature one of these numbers in the 
grand march. Green will present an 
orchestra of fifteen pieces when he plays 
here Saturday. 

From the advance sale of tickets, it is 
expected that a large crowd will attend 
the Ball. Besides representatives from 
the Reserve Officers Training Corps at 
Harvard, Yale and Norwich, reserve 
officers will be present from Connecticut 
State College. 

The ushers for the Ball are made up 
of Donald Chase, head usher, Vincent 
Gilbert, Henry Walker, Cornelius O'Neal 
and Joseph Zilman.

(Continued from l"age 4) 
b e tw e en the "selective service" of 1918 
and the "code of fair competition" today, 
between the sacrifice and co-operative 
effort demanded then and the same moral 
qualities manifest now. Wilson's "work 
or fight" order of 1918 breathed the spirit 
of thrift and appealed to the ideal of 
loyalty, as does Roosevelt's plan for 
relieving unemployment by providing 
work rather than by proffering dole. 

It seems to me that it was a mistake 
to close the World War generation of 
American history in 1933, to condemn it 
as reactionary and selfish, and to forget 
it as soon and as completely as possible. 
I suspect that the War generation is with 
us still. After 14 years of reaction, 
America begins to apply lessons learned 
during the dark days of 1918, lessons 
costly and painful but also precious and 
practical. It begins to look as though the 
"new deal" is a swing back from post- 
War reaction; if so, it constitutes a 
second period of the World War genera- 
tion, and promises a revival of the War- 
time service spirit, whereof America was 
so proud.

The College Inn 

Newman Club To 
Join Federation 

Local Society Will Be Affiliated with 

Federation of College 

Catholic Clubs 

Contemplating affiliation with the Fed- 
eration ol College Catholic Clubs, the 
local Newman Club, under the direction 
of its president, Daniel J. I ol<\ ';;;,, j s 

about to take its most Important step 

since the club's inception. 

The Newman Clttb for the last two 
year*, has been making ■ most successful 
attempt .it combining the religious and 
social interests of its members, and the 

proposed i tli/ation is a part of its 

progressive program for the coming \ 

The Federation of College Catholic 
Clubs was founded in New York in 1010 
with delegates liom six clubs forming the 
nucleus of the organization. Today, as a 
result of the activity of its founders, the 
Federation has grown to a membership 
of one hundred and thirty clubs, repre- 
senting almost every part of the United 
States and Canada. How well the Fed- 
eration has succeeded may be indicated 
by the increases in numbers of Newman 
Clubs from six in l!Uf> to a present total 
of two hundred and fifteen. 

Since the mcmbeiship of the Federation 
has grown to such large numbers, efficient 
administration of its functions is ob 
tained by means ol Provinces, fourteen in 
number, in the United States and Canada. 
Kach Province is the representative of 
the national office and takes over the 
functions of the latter in the Province. 
Authority however, comes only from the 
individual clubs in convention, who de- 
termine the policy for the year and elect 
t he Province officers. 

Thl local Newman Club will be a 
member of the New Fngland Province 
and will have an equal share in the 
government of the Federation's affairs in 
that territory.

Having proved to himself satisfac- 
torily that certain aptitudes are inherited 
in dogs, Mr. Whitney next tried to find 
out if mental aptitudc,s are inherited in 
human beings. He found through observ- 
ing oOO cases in New Haven that in 
families where there was one mentally 
delicient child it was invariably true that 
Other children in the family were also 
mentally sub-normal. 

Mr. Whitney, in closing, pointed out 
the fact that the college graduate clas^ is 
not reproducing itself while the feeble- 
minded class is increasing at a startling 
rate; that the time will conic unless 
measures are taken to counteract this 
condition when the sane- inhabitants of a 
nation will not be able to shoulder the 
tremendous burden of caring for this 
ever-increasing group of sub-normal peo-

Odell Shepard states: "We are running 
this college on tobacco-power. Now, I 
am not myself a bigoted foe of the

septic, warranted to slay every germ of 
an idea in its neighborhood. Perhaps we 
shall be able to maintain this comfort- 
able situation forever, turning out thou- 
sands of men who will sleep peacefully 
all their lives. All we need to do is smoke 
enough. I suggest we erect a statue to 
Jean Nicot, our patron saint, in the most 
prominent niche of the college Chapel, 
and set aside a fund for a perennial 
supply of suitable incense."

The students of Mexico's National 
University have been in revolution 
against the revolutionists. They didn't 
like the Communistic leanings of the 
head of their school, and of his fellow 
Marxists on the faculty. For weeks they 
rioted, refused to go to class, threw tear- 
gas bombs, and burned a professor in 
effigy. Now they have the unique right 
to elect their own university president 
and council. 

A machine to Hip pennies has been built 
by Professor Pope Hill at the University 
of Georgia. This is the law of chance 
from a new angle. 

Two hundred and ninety-eight of the 
class of U).i7 came to Princeton for an 
education, 170 because of the university's 
name and reputation and 70 for contacts 
and social advantages, according to the 
I'rincetonian's annual questionnaire to 
the freshman class. Many indicated 
several reasons in answering this question. 
A few made their choice because of the 
campus and nearness to home, and several 
frankly stated that they had come to 
loaf for four years. Phi Beta Kappa keys 
were preferred to varsity letters by 339 
to 100. Various opinions were given on 
the qualifications of an ideal girl. All 
one freshmen demanded was a girl who 
could "hold her liquor" and was "not 
too high hat." Another would not be 
satisfied without a girl named Mary, 
live feet, six and a half tall and an under- 
graduate at Vassar.

Nikolai Orloff, Russian pianist will be

'Of all the great pianists, Orloff has,

Horning Post. Indeed Nikolai OrlofT is

"With Harvard so nearby, I might well 
say that after four years at Vale and 
Munich I have had enough of university 
life," said President Hugh P. Baker in a 
recent address at the 4Sth annual meet- 
ing of the New England Association of 
Colleges and Secondary Schools. Fur- 
ther reiteration of the President's atti- 
tude toward the question of a University 
of Massachusetts follows in this quota- 
tion: "Of course I can bring peace to 
all who might become disturbed at the 
possibility of Massachusetts State be- 
coming a University by saying that the 
new president of the growing State 
College in the western wilds of the state 
is in no way interested in a university in 
the fine old town of Amherst." 

Treating of the founding and growth 
of the college under the heading, "Massa- 
chusetts State — An Unwanted Child — 
And How She Has Grown," President 
Baker described the childs pre-natal days 
as ones of uncertain promise for the little 
one's development. "Visionary-minded 
men," he said, "considering the need of a 
col|ege for the vocational education of 
their sons and daughters, had met in 
prolonged discussions in the years just 
preceding the Civil War and passed 
resolutions which finally culminated in a 
legislative act creating an agricultural 
college. However, the selection of the 
land-site for this institution proved a 
most difficult and wrath-provoking task, 
causing the first president to resign be- 
cause of the situation. Two more presi- 
dents were elected with their subsequent 
resignations before a single student had 
entered the new institution. 

"Gradually! however, the students 
began straggling in, and the college 
■tatted on its long and patient struggle 

for existence. In 1<S»>2 there a p p ear ed ■ 
benevolent foster-parent in the form of 
the Morril Act of Congress whose appro- 
priations augmented the weak scraps of 
State allotment. Amongst these sur- 
roundings, as is often the case in real 
life, the ragged and dirty child developed 
into a sturdy warrior whose stout muscle- 
stood up well in a famous boat rice on 

the Connecticut River where it left its 

older and more refined brothers boat 
lengths behind." In describing the evo- 
lution of the social confidence of the 

college, President Maker draws a com- 
parison between the Lord Fauntlerov

Collegian Reporter Criticizes Pro- 
ductions of Patterson Players 

On Friday evening, January 13, the 
Patterson Players presented a group of 
three plays to an audience of about one 
thousand people. The first of these, The 
Valiant, by Holworthy Hall and Robert 
Middlcmass, was produced under the 

direction of Dr. Maxwell 11. Goldberg. 

The second presentation, an adaptation 
of Edgar Allen Poe's The Fall of the House 
of Usher, and th» last play, Sham, by F. 
G. Tomkinns, were directed by Mr. 
Harold Smart, and were given as a radio 

The scene of The Valiant is laid in the 
warden's office of the State's Prison at 
Wethersfield, Connecticut. A condemned 
prisoner is awaiting execution. The 
action, tense and dramatic throughout, 
reaches its climax when James Dyke, 
the condemned man, is allowed to see 
his sister, who, failing to get him to 
admit his identity, and convinced that 
he is not her brother, is able to offer him, 
nevertheless, strength and |>eace of mind 
in his last moments. Dyke, in his turn, 
is able to give the girl and her mother 
relief and financial comfort for the rest 
of their lives. 

The performance was restrained and 
completely unified. The setting was plain 
yet effective, placing the onlooker im- 
mediately in the bleak prison atmosphere. 
The actors were vital and convincing in 
their portrayal of the characters. Each 
movement was natural and significant in 
its own right, yet each blended into the 
whole. The play itself was well inter- 
preted and well r< reived by the audience. 
The cast of The Valiant, put on by the 
Beta group, was as follows:

In First Report, Dr. Raker Announces 

Increased Fined linen t and Need 

for College Hospital 

In his lust annual re|>ort to the board 
of Trustees, President Hugh IV Maker of 
the Massachusetts Stale College, today 
pointed to an impressive list of specific 
accomplishments by the College during 
the first year of his administration. 

These accomplishments include the 
securing of funds totaling $f)27,<MX) from 
the Civil Works Administration in Wash- 
ington for projects for building and 
campus improvements at the College. 
"These projects," said the President, "if 
and when carried out, will make available 
much needed buildings such as the library 
and a men's dormitory. One of the 
projects provides for the completion of 
the relaying of healing mains and the 
replacement of certain equipment in the 
heating and lighting plant." 

Further significant accomplishments 
sighted by President Raker included the 
organization of a College Placement 
Bureau Service in charge of Mr. Emory 
K. Grayson, assisted by Professor (iuy 
K. t.latfcltcr and Miss Margaret Hamlin; 
the appointment of Assistant Dean 
l.anphear as faculty advisor to classes 
and other student government groups; 
and the publication of a college history

Member of Class of 1871 Claims Title 
As Oldest Alumnus of College 

When it was stated in a Springfield 
newspaper that Mr. Wilson M. Tucker 
w'71 of Monson, Mass. is the oldest 
living former student of Massachusetts 
State College, a letter was received from 

Mr. George II. Eastman w'7i of Long 

Bench, California who claimed that title. 

Mr. Fast man was born in North 

Amherst, April 1, IK ill, while Mr. Tinker 

was born S ept ember •'{, lx-47. After 

attending Massachusetts State College, 
Mr. Eastman taught school in North- 
ampton. At Storm l.ake, Iowa, he was 

superintendent of u book from 1K7. - M87. r >. 

later he was co nnec t e d for twenty 
years with the banking business, holding 
every position from bookkeeper to presi- 
dent c.f the Storm Lake and Trust Na-

In a personal interview with a Colli 
reporter, Mr. Alexandre Thiede, i onductor 
of the Boston Philharmonk Orchestra 
Mated that he- received much pleasure 
from taking his orchestra to the vai 
educational institutions ol Nea England. 
He ex pressed his opinion that college 
officials would greatly benefit by schedul 
ing at least twice- a year sonic- well known 
symphony orchestra, lor in so doing thej 

would t -lid to develop in the Student an 

appreciation ol the very tmc-st t y jm- of 
music which it is possible to hear. 

In arranging a program which in to be- 
given at a college, Mr. Thiede stated that 

it was his aim to select tluw numbers 
which ar._- not particularly familiar to the 
student group yet which were highly 
melodic- in nature. Through the arrang- 
ing of such a program, the student's inter* 

e>t in music may be aroused and the stud- 
ent may be encouraged to make a personal 
study into the general subject ofjmusic. 

Mr. Thiede when queried by the re- 
porter as to whethei in liK opinion people 
wc-ic- not taking i interest in t he 

best musk rtated very emphatically that 
people arc demonstrating a ^re.ii d. 
to hc-ai- the highest type oi musk:. One 
on for tbi- increase in interest i> the 
influence c.f the radio. As an example of 
tin- power oi the radio in providing good 
music, Mi. Thiede cites tin Chesterfield, 
Lucky Strike-, and Cadillac prog rams, 
which are introducing the finest concert 
art ists tc, thousands oi radio listeners, 

In commenting upon himsell and his 

relation tc, music, Mr. Thiede said, 
"Music: is my life. I could not live- with- 
out it. At the a^e- ot four I took my first 
violin lesson and at live- years of age I 
appear ed in my hrsl concert. I have 
Ijeen actively engaged in music all my 
life and never tire of it, instead my love 
for it increases."

Although we are conscious of the faults which should be eliminated in our 
curriculum, and while we admire President Baker for seeing the necessity of a cur- 
riculum reorganization, we do not l>elieve that such a reorganization should be based 
on the theory that the course of study in our college should correspond or be corre- 
lated with the "world outside." Neither do «< believe that the student can possibly 
be helped beyond a certain almost negligible point to solve the age-old problems of 
manhood and womanhood by being trained to solve problems which are not lasing 
or eternal, or by instruction in the methods of business, in the political forms of 
modern Kurope, in the nature of the human reflex, or the troubles of our times. On 
the contrary, we are certain that the solution to all the problems which the reorgani- 
zation of the course of study is expected to eliminate comes from another source. 
We believe that the curriculum should not be arranged to edify the student in the 
intricacies of the National Recovery Administration or the finances of the Recon- 
struction Finance Corporation, but rather to give him a grounding in such unpre- 
tentious things as courage, persistency, insight, moral stamina, and ability to find 
for oneself this extra knowledge. In this editorial, we shall set forth our objections 
to the doctrine of adapting the curriculum of the college to the demands of business, 
politics, and society. On the following week, we shall state as clearly as we can the 
concrete principles on which a reorganization, if there is to be one, should be made. 
We shall give facts and ideas on which to raise a curriculum which will develop, as 
much as any curriculum can, the virtues which we lack. We are bold enough to do 
this because we l>elieve we represent the true opinions, desires, hopes, and needs of 
a group of students, not on this campus alone, who recently applauded the sincere 
address of Alvan Ryan, at President Baker's inauguration, when he decisively said, 
"Not training f jr citizenship, not preparation for a better job, not the acquisition of 
a degree, but the pursuit of knowledge for its own sake is the true ideal of education, 
and "More and more students have come here searching for something deeper and 
more significant than the practical courses in agriculture and mechanic arts." 

In this editorial we shall examine the arguments put forth by those who advocate 
a curriculum based on the outside world, and we shall attempt to refute these argu- 
ments. There are three headings under which the arguments for modern educational 
practices are given; they are: to understand the world, to carry on the work of the 
world, and to secure a job. In order for the student to understand the world, he 
must know what is happening, he must know what changes are taking place in 
Berlin, in Mom SOW, i" Paris, and in Washington. He must be cognizant of the lif- 
ferences between the twentieth and seventeenth centuries. He must be given courses 
in the "Physio, rati," the "Deists," the NKA, the CWA, the PWA, the AAA, and 
the RFC. Again. BO thai ■ student, when he has left the academic life, may calcu- 
late his income taxes, may drive a car, and may carry on the simple banking business 
iiecess.ii v to any household, there must be included in the curriculum courses which 
will give him training in all these things. "As our civilization," says a writer of 
educational textbooks, "increased in complexity and difficulty, education must de- 
velop and broaden to retain its usefulness and effectiveness." The course of study 
must include subjects in everything in order that the students shall understand the 
Comple x and di ffi cul t "world outside." To < any on the work of the world, in order 
that "Tomorrow and tomorrow and tomorrow" will creep "in this petty pace from 
• lay to das," our College men and women must be learned in everything to keep alive 
this all-knowing universe. So that this tottering world may stay "to the last syllable 

of recorded time." our collegiate undergraduate must be wholly enlightened in all of 

its transitory forms. In order that life may continue, courses in marriage, in child- 
care, in domestic affection must be included in the course of study to enable our 

boys and girls, as no one ever before, to s )Ke the delicate problems of marriage, oi 
childhood, and domestic happiness. Above all, our curriculum should be a reflection 

of the life beyond Acidemia because our students must secure .uu\ keep work. The 

college and the university should train men in certain definite fields so they shall 
have a vocation, a position to cherish and to hold, after the usual period of adjust- 
ment, until death. In order t hat college graduates of this and future general ions will 

understand the world, will carry on the world', work, and will be able t<> possess 

positions when they leave the "cloistered life," our course of Stud) must be made 
subservient to the outer world, to fit the student for one definite thing, for a vocation. 

for a job. 

Our reasons for opposing this reorganization on the principles set forth above 
are not so numerous but we believe more pertinent and vital than those cited. Il to 
understand the world means to be learned in the "outer world," in the not-so-im- 
portant things oi life such as banking methods, government, politics, certainly it is 
true we do not understand our world very completely, or for a long period of time 
afur graduation. Life changes so rapidly and the flux cannot be eliminated. Stu- 
dents trained in one thing find it changed when they leave school; these students 
are of no value because of the speed of change in methods and subject matter. Edu- 
cation and instruction in the things that alter and vary, that are never fixed, in 
subjects that will some day vanish offer no opportunities and time for guidance in 
the things that will last and endure. For the reasons that there is no value in study- 
ing subjects which alter, and that such studies occupy time that might be devoted 
to things permanent, our curriculum should not be based on the things of the "outer 
world." For the s.une reasons, educated men and women will never be able to carry- 
on the "tottering worl I" if they are taught (hanging facts and fancies and nothing 
of permanency. Students must be educated in things which Will enable them to 
raise their fortunes above the Mux and uncertainty of time. Character, fortitude,

A little more at ease now that they have 
a little practice under their belts, the 
Massachusetts State puckmen will jour- 
ney to Willi, unstow n on Friday, Jan. 19, 
to meet the Williams College skaters. 
The next day they will face the Hamilton 
College sextet at Clinton, N. Y . 

The teamwork which the Statesmen 
exhibited against a strong M.I.T. team 
that had previously provided the stiffest 
of competition against Harvard, Yale, 
Army, Brown, and Northeastern, func- 
tioned as if it were the outcome of several 
weeks practice, although, in reality, they 
had very few hours to their credit. This, 
plus the benefits derived from a few 
practice sessions since, is sufficient to 
make the State supporters believe they 
will break into the win column Friday. 
A scrimmage with Deerfield Academy 
last Tuesday aided considerably from the 
practice point of view. 

The Williams six has played four 
games so far this season — three of them 
informal — and, although they did hand 
these first three practice tilts to Hamilton 
they showed a reversal of form and 
swamped Middlebury 6 to in a regular 
schedule game the next week. During 
the Christmas vacation, the Purple 
skaters met the Hamilton team as part 
of a winter sports program between the 
two colleges. On three successive nights 
they were downed by scores of 4-2, 2-0, 
4-2 respectively. It seemed as though the 
Purple team was slated to go through a 
season similar to last season in which the 
outcome was disastrous — not one victory 
being chalked up. However, presenting 
an all-sophomore forward line against the 
Middlebury Panthers the following week, 
Coach Snively saw his team perform 
smoothly in presenting both an attack 
and defense that had the Vermonters 
bewildered throughout. This sophomore 
line, after playing together this season, 
will be the basis of what promises, in the 
next two years, to be the best hockey 
outfit that Williams has ever had. A 
game scheduled with Yale the following 
week, last Saturday, was canceled on 
account of soft ice. 

Hamilton has also played four games — 
the three informal ones with Williams and 
one with Middlebury. Hamilton's de- 
fense was well nigh impregnable in this 
latter game which the New Yorkers 
took, 3 to 0. Their style of defense was 
evidenced in their method of driving the 
puck-carrier to the boards, thus keeping 
him out of range of the goal. Last year 
the Bay Staters downed them 3 to 2. 
This year they will put a team which 
has only three veterans on the ice. Capt. 
Ldwards, defenseman, Scott, the goalie, 
and McKenzie, center, all saw action 
against the Maroon team last year and 
will again face them this year. 



Celebrating its entry as a newly recog- 
nized athletic activity at State, the 
Maroon and White swimming team will 
•lay host to the tankmen from Worcester 
lech in the pool in the Physical Educa- 
tion Building, Saturday night. Coach 
|on Rogers, a Tech graduate and a star 
i the swimming team while there, will 
it a crew of inexperienced tankmen 
linst a veteran Tech outfit. 
Coach Rogers has built his team 
• und four men who are expected to be 
main point-getters of the squad for 
season. He has not placed them in 
definite events and will not do so 
il just before the meet. Dick Brown, 


State's varsity hockey sextet, after 
providing a great deal of unlooked-for 
opposition and strength -both offensively 
and defensively — bowed to a fast, smooth 
performing M.I.T. six last Friday in the 
Boston Arena, 4 to 2. The game was a 
costly one, for the services of Ambrose 
McGuckian, star State goalie whose work 
at the net has been outstanding both last 
year and in the two games played so far 
this season, will be lost to Coach Red 
Ball and the Maroon and White team for 
the remainder of the schedule. Mc- 
Guckian, early in the third period, dove 
from the net intending to smother a shot 
that Leman, the Engineer center, was 
preparing to let fly. He miscalculated 
and the puck, like a bullet, from the end 
of Leman's stick, struck him on the cheek 
just as he was about a foot off the ice. 
He was knocked unconscious and, after 
first aid was administered, was taken to 
the Massachusetts General Hospital where 
an X-ray was taken. This showed him 
to be suffering from a broken nose and a 
fractured right cheekbone. It is expected 
that he will be confined in the hospital 
for at least two or three weeks. 

Jimmy Valentine, a sophomore, (not 
Manager Valentine), who is aspiring for 
the net position on the State sextet, 
happened to be in Boston at the time and 
was present at the game. When the 
accident occurred, he promptly donned 
the pads and finished the game at goal. 

In spite of the lack of practice and the 
little preparation the State pucksters have 
hnd this season, they performed creditably 
and particularly outstanding was the 
work of McGuckian, Captain Russ Snow, 
and Pop Henry. 

The State sextet, unused to the perfect 
ice in the Arena, were caught off guard by 
the opening sally of the Bostonians, and 
found themselves one down when Wil- 
liams, Tech's left wing, took a pass from 
Daley, the center, and shot the disc past 
McGuckian after lm. 21s. of play. Rhone, 
Tech's outstanding defenseman scored ten 
minutes later unassisted, on a long shot 
from the State blue line. 

After Daley had opened the second 
period with a score on a rebound from 
behind the State net, the offense of the 
Statesmen became pronounced. Fred 
Bull, right defense, carrying the puck 
into Tech territory along the boards on 
the right, flipped it to Pop Henry who 
had kept pace with him, and Henry 
promptly counted. Henry scored again a 
few seconds after the faceoff following 
the previous goal. Snow beat the Tech 
center then and promptly carried the 
puck to the front of the Tech net where, 
from the ensuing melee, Corcoran fed it 
to Henry who shoved it into the strings. 

Throughout the final period the State 
offense clicked in fine fashion and it 
dominated the rest of the game. Re- 
peatedly the forward line rifled shots at 
the Tech goalie, and it was only through 
the spectacular saves of Milliken that 
more goals were averted. Soon after 
McGuckian was taken out, Rhones 
counted to finish the scoring of the game. 
McGuckian made 33 saves while in the 
game, several of which were noteworthy. 

Art Merrill, William Tirrell, and Dave 
Mountain are those on whom the job of 
obtaining points rests. 

While Coach Rogers is not too opti- 
mistic over the possibilities of a victory 
over the experienced Engineers, he feels 
that, with more experience, his charges 
will provide more than enough opposition 
for the opponents that follow. 

Last night numerals were awarded to 
the sophomore team, interclass basket- 
ball champs. Captain J. Sturtevant,

Springfield College's baseball season 
opens the 13th of April with Yale at 
New Haven and closes the 8th of June 
with Connecticut State. The Gymnast 
nine is scheduled to meet Taube's hurlers 
in May on Alumni Field. As yet no 
definite decision has lieen reached over 
the proposal that the Springfield tvarsiy 
club be sent South on a training trip 
early in April. The faculty manager of 
the Springfield College athletics has been 
trying to alter the schedule to permit such 
a jaunt, believing that the candidates 
need the intensive training for their 
18 game schedule with such colleges as 
Yale, New Hampshire, The Little Three, 
Providence, and Holy Cross. 

Coach Derby of the Maroon tracksters 
has been gradually getting his relay can- 
didates in shape for the first meet, the 
K. of C. games in Boston the 27th of this 
month. The members of the quartet will 
be picked after time trials this week-end. 
At present, Glenn Shaw, the only veteran, 
appears to be the fastest man on the 
squad. Glenn has a knack of getting 
away to a quick start; and having cut 
down his time by about two seconds from 
last year, he looms as Derby's most 
likely choice for lead-off man. Ted Kerr, 
freshman quarter-miler last year, has 
been ill for a few days, but at present 
he appears to be a logical choice for the 
team, as is also Bob Lincoln, another 
sophomore quarter-miler. Three other 
men are battling on nearly even terms for 
the fourth position in the quartet. 
Battles and Parker, two more members 
of the class of 1936, and Stepat, captain- 
elect of the 1934 harriers, will probably 
furnish the fourth runner and the reserve 
man for the winter's relay races. 


Northeastern boasts a four-sport star, 
Gay Milbrandt, captain of track and star 
in football, basketball, and baseball. 
Last Saturday he broke the Northeastern 
indoor shot-put record in the dual meet 
with Brown by a throw of 47 feet 6 3-4 
inches— incidently it was his own record 
that he broke; while Northeastern 
Huskies roundly trounced the Bruins, 
47-25. Then the versatile athlete re- 
turned to Boston to play a brilliant game 
at center for the Husky five as they won 
over Middlebury, 34-24 on the basketball 

Amherst defeated Wesleyan 25-20 to 
carry off the honors in the opening of the 
Little Three hoop season. The Lord Jeff 
five took an early lead, but in the last 
minutes of the game the Middletown 
team staged a rally that threatened the 
superiority of the Sabrinas. The two 
opposing centers, Vin Keesey of Amherst 
and Captain Harry Allen of the Wesleyan 
quintet, led the individual scoring with 
eight points apiece. 

The schedule for interfraternity ath- 
letics during the coming week is as 

Tonight, Jan. 18. Phi Sigma Kappa 
vs. Q.T.V.; Alpha Sigma Phi vs. Non- 

Friday, Jan. 19. Lambda Chi Alpha 
vs. Theta Chi.

With a chance to avenge the football 
defeat of last fall, the Maroon and White- 
hoop team, fresh from victories over 
Middlebury and Connecticut State, will 
clash with their old time rival, Amherst, 
at the Amherst cage tomorrow evening. 
This year the Lord Jeffs have a strong 
team, and after a slow start they have 
come along rapidly until now they are a 
very formidable opponent. 

In their opening game with Clark, the 
Jeffinen presented a wide variety of 
basketball. Against a fair team from 
Worcester, they appeard ragged and off 
their game at times, while at others they 
exhibited some very effective basketball. 
Turner, left forward, playing his first 
year of basketball was the high scorer, 
making 9 points, and also Keesey, scor- 
ing 7 points at center, were outstanding 
for the Jeffs. The final score was Am- 
herst 26, Clark 23. 

In their next appearance, against 
Wesleyan, the Amherst five presented a 
much improved brand of basketball. 
With speed and accuracy much better, 
the Lord Jeffs staged a great game and 
preserved an early lead to carry off the 
victory 25 to 20. 

Amherst will have a team wilh plenty 
of strength; and with the confidence 
derived from the Wesleyan win as well 
as the well-rounded attack so well demon- 
strated in this game, the Lord Jeffs will 
prove a stiff obstacle for the State ma- 
chine to overcome. Jim Keesey, high 
scorer in both games Amherst has played 
will probably receive the starting assign- 
ment at center. George Fusco and Earl 
Turner at forwards, and Dick Marriott 
and Bob Moses at guards will comprise 
the rest of the team at the opening 

The Maroon and White basketeers are 
in fine shape and with two victories 
already chalked up are in a good position 
to take the decision in this important 
contest. Much improvement has been 
made in team work, and a smooth -work- 
ing passing game has been perfected. 
This, with the improvement in the 
accuracy of shootin a , will make the State 
quintet much stronger than in the two 
earlier games. The starting five will 
probably include Bill Davis at center, 
Lou Bush, right forward, Ernie Jaworski 
or Ed Nassif at left forward, with the 
defense made up of Johnny Stewart, 
back guard, and Captain Joe Lojko at 
floor guard. McConchie and Bill Frigard 
will probably also see service along with 
Mai Stewart. 

On Monday evening the State quintet 
will journey to Williamstown where they 
will take on a strong Williams College 
five. This contest should prove a hard 
one for the Maroon and White as Wil- 
liams possesses a fast, moving aggrega- 
tion which has already taken the measure 
of Union and Rochester and only lost to 
Springfield after a very close battle. 

In the opening game of the season, the 
Purple suffered a defeat at the hands of 
Springfield College, the score being 35 to 
28. The contest was close all the way 
through, the count being 16 to 16 in 
favor of the Gymnasts at half time; and 
it was only in the last few minutes of 
play that Springfield was able to draw 
away from the Purple and secure their 
seven point margin. Swan, left forward, 
tallied eight of the Williams count with 
Nevins, right forward, making seven 
points; while Kroll, right guard, ac- 
counted for six. 

In their next game the Ephmen took 

the measure of Union to the tune of 33 

to 25 in a fast contest. The Purple were 

trailing 13 to 4 in the first half when

Inaugurating the 1934 season in fitting 
style, the Massachusetts State basketball 
team carried off a 35 to 31 victory over a 
hard-fighting Middlebury quintet Thurs- 
day evening in the cage. The Statesmen, 
slow in getting started, were at a dis- 
advantage until midway in the first half 
when the team play became more effec- 
tive; and from that time on the Maroon 
quintal had complete mastery of the 

Lou Bush was the State high scorer, 
sinking eight baskets from the floor and 
making good a foul shot for a total oj 
seventeen |wints. Another State high man 
was Bill Davis, who tallied 11 points in 
scoring four t wo- poi liters and three foul 

Opening the scoring, Captain Joe 
Lojko accounted for one point from the 
foul line; but the Blue combine, having 
already played three games, clicked to 
advantage as Baumgartner and Leete 
each dropped in a two-pointer to give 
the Panthers the lead. Lou Bush and 
Bill Davis, in great combination play 
finally got the State machine under way 
and the scoreboard liegan clicking up 
Maroon and White (Mints. Ernie Jawor- 
ski, entering the game at this point, sank 
two l»eautiful long shots from the center 
of the floor and State had a lead of three 

Four baskets by Lou Bush and one by 
Captain Lojko were the extent of the 
Maroon and White scoring for the rest 
of the period; while Leete, Sweet, and 
Clonan combined to keep Middlebury in 
the running and the period ended with 
State leading 22 to 19. 

Opening the second half, Davis and 
Bush increased the State lead by five 
points; but a desperate assault by the 
Panther five with Sweet, Hoehm, and 
Clonan each scoring a goal from the floor 
brought Middlebury within two points of 
the Maroon and White. 

The Bush-Davis combination again 
opened up in grand style, and although 
Hoehm brought Middlebury within one 
point of tying the score, two baskets, one 
by Bill Davis and the other by Lou Bush, 
made the lead secure. Despite the desper- 
ate work by Clonan and Leete the State 
defense remained impregnable for the 
remaining two minutes of play, and the 
final whistle ended the game with State 
chalking up a win by a score of 35 to 31. 

Outstanding was the work of Bush and 
Davis, their scoring being the main 
factors in the State victory. Joe Lojko, 
this year playing guard, played his usual 
stellar game and did a fine job in stopping 
the Middlebury attacks. 

Johnny Stewart, playing his first 
college basketball game, fitted very 
nicely into the Maroon and White 
machine; and the defense combination 
of Lojko and Stewart looks very promis- 
ing. Ernie Jaworski, at left forward, 
tallied two fine baskets from the middle 
of the floor and should figure largely in 
the scoring in future games. 

For the Panthers Clonan, Sweet, and 
Leete were the most effective, while 
Baumgartner and Hoehm stood out also 
for the Middlebury players, and the all 
round combination play of the Blue 
team made them a strong opponent. 

Registering their second straight tri- 
umph of the 1934 season, the Maroon 
and White hoop team defeated a fighting 
Connecticut State outfit Monday night 
at Storrs, Connecticut. The Massachu- 
setts team with Bill Davis, Lou Bush- 
and Captain Joe Lojko accounting for 
34 of the points had much the better of 
their rivals after the first few minutes of 
the contest.

tions which will be required. 

"The project has the dual pur|H>sc of 
Collecting economic information of special 

current information to us and we believe 

to you and others in your state, and of 
giving temporary employment to |iersons 
who are now unemployed and who are 
qualified to assist in gathering the desired

from Nils A. Olsen, chief of the Bureau 
of Agricultural Kconomii s at Washing- 
ton, D. C. 

He further says, "The data on mort- 
gage lorei losures we plan to get in repre- 
sentative counties, including from a fifth 
to a third of the agricultural counties of 
the State. We should appreciate your 
guidance in selecting these counties. The 
data on tax delinquents we plan to get

Prof. Migbell stales that "the colic, lion 
ol accurate data on farm taxes, tax de- 
linquencies, farm mortgages and exchange 
of farm property is believed in high circles 
to lie of inestimable value to the national

Director Sievers 


Instructor in English Criticises "The 

Conquistador" of Modern 

American Poet 


Freshmen Are Taller, Heavier, and 
Bigger Than Sophomores 

If figures mean anything, the class of 
1937 should leave behind a better athletic 
record than its predecessers, as proven 
by a recent compilation of the data of 
the Freshman Physical Examinations 
held last fall by Dr. RadclilTe. Not only 
has the new class continued the trend of 
the past few years for greater height and 
weight, but towards a general improve- 
ment in physical development. 

As a result of 122»'. examinations, it was 
found the average freshman is tiS.K inches 
tall and weigh- 144.7 pounds. His name 
is John Robert and he is one fifth of an 
inch taller and nine-tenths of a pound 
heavier than his predecessor of 1936 who 
was called most frequently John Charles. 
Another contrast between the two 
classes is, that while 1938 ran to hca\ s - 
weight, having IS or twice as main, over 
170 pounds, 1937 boasts of over a platoon 
of six foot cadets to lead the parade on 
Inspection Day. The situation is re 
versed for extreme records as there in- 
considerable vertical distance between a 
7tj 1-4 inch sophomore and a 02 inch 
freshman. 1938 captured both high and 
low events in the weight division with a 
22H pound entry and his 107 pound class- 
or naif-mate. 

If laid end to end. the 220 freshmen 
would stretch 1,313 feet or nearly the 
length of the new walk on Plea-ant St. 
If massed in one lump, the entire 33,511 
pounds of freshman bulk could be made 
into enough mincemeat to be spread in a 
four inch layer ten feet wide times the 
width of a football field. At current 
prices quoted in Orientation classes, this 
new product may find use as an eco- 
nomical gridiron marker. 

Stating that "Archibald Macl.eish has 
utilized the sixteenth century Spaniard 
(Hemal Dia/i and his account as a 
screen against which to project, without 
explicit formulation, the paradox at the 
heart of the' modern dilemma," Dr. 
Maxwell Goldberg of the English depart- 
ment spoke last Tuesday evening on the 
"Conquistador of Archibald Macl.eish." 
This discussion was the second in the 
1934 series of talks sponsored by the 
department of languages and literatures 
Explaining his stand in regard to 

poetry and unitelligibility, Professor Gold- 
berg said, "The Poetry of unintelligibilit y 
where it is something more than mere 
puzzle poetry, or deliberately snobbish 

poetry of e a c es n ve allusiveoess, is rather 

the jioetry of glorious failure than that 
of transcendent succc-s. I almost re- 
gret," the speaker said in talking on this 
subject, "being forced to the conclusion 
that unintelligibilit y may be compatible 
with a fair degree of poetic success." Dr. 
Goldberg stated his stand in regard to 
unintelligible poetry in order to establish 
a background and a foundation (or a 
criticism of Macl.eish. 

In histreatment of Archibald Macl.eish, 
the speaker divided his discussion of the 
poet into four sections: subject matter, 
technique, mood, and implications. The 
poem is concerned with the conquest ot 
Mexico by Cortez. narrated by one old 
Spaniard Bemai Diaz. The technique of 
the poem is eclectic. Into "The Conquis- 
tador," all the elements of long-written 
poems have entered. The epics of the 

Occident, and Beowulf all are to be 
found reflected to a greater or less de- 
gree in the poem. 

"Closely allied to this absorption of 
MacLeish's energies in the chronicling of 
a peculiar kind of psychological phenome- 
non is his fascination for the master 
mood stirring up these fitful memories 
of the old man. and in turn aggravated 
by them .is they take on broken form 
and texture. The poem has a lone of 
regret that sounds through the poem, the 
paaaagea containing letters, messages or 
direct speech, often reinforce that tone 
with an injection of the dark fibres of 
bitter scorn." 

"Hut," the speaker continued, "prior 
to this seething yet impotent complex of 
dark emotions is the all-enveloping mood 
of the pod himself, standing above all 
the writhings of actions ami passions out 
of the obscure past. It- eeeence is a 
heavy almost enervating awareness of 
the seeming futility in the labors of past 

The implications of the poem, Professor 
Goldberg interpreted in the following 
passage, "In short the Diaz of MacLeish's 
poem is a twentieth century post-war 
disillusionist and cynic having but little 
in common with the Diaz emerging from 
the pages of the True History. Macl.eish 
has Utilised this sixteenth century Span- 
iard and his account as a screen against 
which to project, without explicit formu- 
lation, the paradox at the heart of the 
modern dilemma: restless quest for more 
abundant elemental sensory life even 
while, beneath all this goaded appetite

"In preparing an entrance examination 
in English at the State College, it occured 
to a Professor of English to insert a 
question designed to bring out the appli- 
cant's knowledge or ignorance of the 
Scriptures. So he asked them to wrile a 
short explanation of the subject of M\ 
Favorite Hook in the Bible, with My 
Ignorance of the Bible as an alternative. 
From each of the resulting papers the 
professor Hand copied one sentence OT a 
brief passage. Some of these are merely 
Stupid; some display a certain amount 
of shrewdness; some are astonishing; 
none show a very deep or penetrating 

acquaintance with the subject. And the 

students, be it remarked, had come in the 
belief that they were fully prepared to 
enter college. Their ignorance was not 
unusual; it was average, typical. Let 
me give a few of the more astounding or 
amusing answers. The spelling is the 
same as in the original papers. 

Moses was born at a time when all was 
confusion and so his mother in designa- 
tion set him afloat in a basket to save 
him from the soldiers. Herod, the reign- 
ing king, had just ordered all new born 
babes ot the male sex to be murdered. 

It was only by her own efforts that 
Naomi persuaded one of them to remain 

with her people. 

The Hook of Revelations says that be-
